WELCOME
Welcome to Loughborough University!

We are delighted that you have chosen Loughborough for your study exchange. We strongly
believe in the benefits of international education and hope that your experience at Loughborough
is both enjoyable and rewarding.

This guide is intended to give you an overview of the application process for incoming exchange
students and, more specifically, to provide information which will assist you with your learning
agreement and module choice.



APPLICATIONS AND LEARNING AGREEMENTS
All incoming exchange students must complete an application form and learning agreement which
can be downloaded from the website:

http://www.lboro.ac.uk/international/erasmus/incoming-student-erasmus/incoming-erasmus/

Completed application forms and learning agreements should be submitted to Loughborough
University by the following deadlines:

   •   15 June 2018 (for Semester One and Full Year exchanges);
   •   15 November 2018 (for Semester Two exchanges).

In order to avoid any delay in processing your application, please ensure that it is signed off by
yourself, your home University and your respective School/Department Exchange Co-ordinator at
Loughborough University.



MODULE CHOICE
When you apply to Loughborough, you will be registered as an exchange student in a host
School/Department. This is the School/Department with which your home University has either an
ERASMUS+ or an international exchange agreement.

It is our expectation that you will participate in full credit-bearing modules whilst at Loughborough
(usually 30 ECTS credits per semester), but the requirements will vary according to your chosen
subject area. When completing your learning agreement, it is, therefore, recommended that you
contact YOUR respective School/Department Exchange Co-ordinator and follow his/her advice.

Exchange students should normally choose modules from the host School/Department, however
registration on 'open access' modules provided by other Schools/Departments may be permitted
in exceptional circumstances. If you would like to take a module that is not taught by your host
School/Department, you must gain approval from BOTH your host School/Department Exchange
Co-ordinator AND the Exchange Co-ordinator from the School/Department in which the module is
taught.

Please bear in mind that, whilst we always try to accommodate the requests of our exchange
students, places are limited and may be subject to you meeting certain pre-requisites in your
chosen subject area. Additionally, as learning agreements are subject to the approval of
your respective School/Department Exchange Co-ordinator, we cannot guarantee that you will
be offered a place on your chosen modules.

TIMETABLE CLASHES AND CHANGES TO YOUR
LEARNING AGREEMENT
Loughborough University uses the following structure for its module coding:

Example: 18EUA601 - The Contemporary World Arena

18     Academic year in which the course will run

EU     Two letter code of the School/Department that runs the module

A      The part (or year) of the degree programme in which the module runs:

                      Part A modules:        1st year
                      Part B modules:        2nd year
                      Part C modules:        3rd year
                      Part D modules:        4th year
                      Part T modules:        Postgraduate

601    Three number individual module code

Please be aware that if you choose modules from across a range of years (eg some part A and
some part B modules), there is an increased chance that timetable clashes will occur and you will
not be able to take all the modules requested in your initial learning agreement.

At Loughborough, the timetable is released near to the start of the semester, therefore it is
possible that we shall not be able to confirm if there is a ‘fit’ for all the modules you have chosen
until the first week of your studies. We do, however, allow all students a period of two weeks after
the start of the semester, in which to finalise their module choices BEFORE the final details are
confirmed with the Student Records Office.

We recommend that you have a few extra module choices in mind, so that if your first choice
modules are not available due to timetable clashes, you can opt to take others.

If you are required to change your module choices due to timetable clashes, you will need to
make the appropriate changes on your learning agreement and seek the approval of your home
University and the respective School/Department Exchange Co-ordinator at Loughborough.



RESEARCH PROJECTS FOR UNDERGRADUATE AND
MASTERS LEVEL STUDENTS
If you wish to undertake a research project whilst you are at Loughborough, please contact the
respective School/Department Exchange Co-ordinator as soon as possible so that they can help
you to find an appropriate project and a supervisor.

Please note that you must be registered for a suitable undergraduate or Masters level project
module and that this must be included on your learning agreement.
