1: APPLY FOR EXCHANGE STUDIES AT YOUR HOME INSTITUTION
First, you need to apply for exchange studies at your home institution. You do that by contacting the international office (or equivalent) at your home institution. Your home institution will then help and guide you with further information about the steps you need to take in order for you to go abroad.
Secondly, before starting the application process with us you need to be accepted/nominated by your home institution. This is important since your home institution is responsible for making sure that the semester you would like to join matches your current study programme and that the ECTS can be transferred. If you have not been nominated to UCL University College by your home institution, you cannot apply for an exchange semester with us.
3: APPLICATION FORM
When your home institution has nominated you, you can start to fill out our online application form. You will find the application form further down on this page. In this form, you will also apply for accommodation*. If you have your learning agreement** ready at this point, you can send it with the application (preferably in pdf-format).
* Read more about accommodation under “Practical information” in the menu.
** You will find your learning agreement in the menu to the right. Please be aware that you have a fixed learning agreement, which means that you have a specific one for the programme and the semester you would like to attend to.
4: APPLICATION DEADLINE
The application must be send to us no later than:
- 1 May for autumn semester (study start in September)
- 1 November for spring semester (study start in February)
5: WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
When you have sent your application, you will receive a confirmation mail stating that we have received your application.
We will send a Letter of Acceptance to you within 2 weeks after application deadline. At the same time, you will receive practical information about e.g. your study-time and accommodation.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the application process, you are more than welcome to contact our international department.
