As part of our objective to strengthen our international academic ties, we welcome students from all over the world through our North American, Asian and Australian partnerships.

In order to be eligible to apply for the International Exchange Programme, you must currently be enrolled as a full-time student at one of our Partner Institutions. If your University is not listed as one of our International Exchange Partners, please get in touch with us at studyabroad@aber.ac.uk to see what options you have to study at Aberystwyth University.

All students interested in enrolling at Aberystwyth University through the International Exchange Programme must be nominated by their Home Institution - in order to be nominated, please contact the relevant department at your Home Institution to nominate students, our partners should contact the Study Abroad Office via studyabroad@aber.ac.uk.

Once we have received your nomination from your home university, students are then asked to complete and submit the International Exchange Application Form.

All applications will need to be supported with the following evidence:

  • Academic Transcript
  • IELTS Certificate (for students, who are non-native English speakers)
  • Copy of Passport ID Pages

Deadlines

Our admissions for the Semester 1 and Full Year of the 2017/2018 Academic Year will be open up until 30th May 2017. The deadline for Semester 2 of the 2017/2018 is 15th October. If you require the deadline to be extended, please get in touch as soon as possible. We recommend students apply no later than one week after the official deadline in such cases so that our office can provide them with acceptance materials as well as the necessary housing information and the immigration support

Modules - choosing your courses

Students are advised to take the equivalent of 60 Aberystwyth Credits (30 ECTS) per semester. The following links allow you to navigate to pages describing each module in terms of the content and the number of teaching/contact hours. Final module choices are not confirmed until the time of registration. You need to make sure that you choose modules that are accepted by your University. Full instructions on selecting modules are provided with the application pack.

If you have a specific question about a module you can direct your query to our Departmental Exchange Coordinators. General queries should be directed to the Study Abroad Office.
