Making an application
You can submit applications for more than one type of Study Abroad (e.g. Summer and Semester) but you must submit separate applications for each.
- Deadline for Semester Abroad, Year 2 @ XJLTU and Year in China Applications: 19 February 2018
- Deadline for Summer Programme applications: 15 March 2018
Before you apply, remember:
- To research the Partner Universities or the scheme you want to apply for carefully. Please note these two very important points:
- For Semester Abroad, Year 2 @ XJTLU and Summer Programmes you should use our search tool to pick eligible universities
- For Semester Abroad. the semester you would attend each University is set centrally owing to term dates (i.e. you cannot choose)
- Attend a Study Abroad event to help you in making your choice. See the events page to find out when and where Study Abroad events are being held
What happens next?
All students will receive notification of the outcome of their application.
For Year in China, as there is no cap on the number of students who can participate, there is no ranking or scoring system - you simply need to meet the eligibility criteria.
For Semester Abroad, Year 2 @ XJTLU and Summer programmes (our competitive schemes), the Study Abroad Team will review all applications. See below for information on how we score, rank and allocate places on these schemes:
