You must then International Lead) complete and submit the online application form and all supporting documents by the deadline at the end of Semester 1. A period of study or work abroad enhances both your student experience and your employment prospects and you are strongly encouraged to consider it as part of your undergraduate degree programme. See our School International webpages: http://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/interdisciplinary/international/ Note that a School International Opportunities Information Session is held every year early in Semester 1 – look out for the email notification. Also note that you can get more detailed, up-to-date information on study abroad options by attending the University's Study Abroad Fair, generally held at main campus in the middle of Semester 1. Even if you cannot attend, it is a good idea to register for the event, since you will then receive updates and be able to access blogs and participate in online discussions with student ambassadors who have experienced study abroad. STUDY ABROAD Normally study abroad can be undertaken in Year 2 or Year 3 of your undergraduate degree programme. Do remember that the study overseas counts as part of your University of Glasgow degree, and must be carefully planned to fit in with your programme of study. You will therefore initially need to discuss the possibility of an exchange with both your Programme Convenor and your Adviser of Studies. Please also note that, unfortunately, in some subjects at some levels it is simply not possible to find a suitable exchange. Each degree programme has different requirements, and so before taking a decision you must check exactly what will be required in order to have the work overseas recognised by the University of Glasgow. Overseas study can be undertaken outside of Europe, e.g. the United States, Canada, Australia, South America, etc. with one of the University-level international exchange partners, or our School- level partner: Northland College, Wisconsin USA, suitable for all UG degree programmes. See: https:// www.northland.edu/ OR it can be undertaken within the European Union with one of our School level partners: Amsterdam University College in the Netherlands, specifically for Environmental Science & Sustainability and Health & Social Policy students. All courses are taught through English. Note that students must have completed at least three semesters of study and have achieved a B3 average to be considered. See http://www.auc.nl/admissions-aid/info-for-exchange-students/ exchangestudents.html Mainz University in Germany. Here a more limited number of courses are taught through English. See: http://www.studying.uni-mainz.de/application-and-admission/ GoAbroad applications are accepted for Semester 2 of Year 2 or for full year, Semester 1 or Semester 2. It is a competitive process, and successful applications are dependent on good academic results, a well-written supporting statement and adequate financial support (i.e. proving that you can afford to get there, live there and get back!).
