  Study Abroad Application

Want to study abroad? Read through the information and fill in the application.

When can I apply?

We have a limited number of places left for students to take part in a study abroad exchange. These places are for trimester 2 ONLY of the 2020/21 academic year.

The application portal will open on Monday 20 April 2020 for three weeks.

The application deadline is Friday 8 May 2020.

Please note that these exchange opportunities are available to undergraduate students only.

Students wishing to study abroad during the 2021/22 academic year should come back to this page in October 2020.

What is the application process?

There are two stages to applying:

  1. Online Study Abroad Application to Edinburgh Napier. This is the form that lets us know you would like to Study Abroad and gives the Global Mobnility Team and your programme leader the information required to make a decision on suitability.
  2. Direct application to the allocated host university. Once your exchange has been approved by Edinburgh Napier, you will need to complete an application to your host university.

These two stages may be up to 10 months apart depending on the start date of your exchange.
It is really important to keep an eye on your student email account to make sure you don’t miss any communications or deadlines about your exchange. Please note, we will only send and respond to emails using your university email address.

Where can I go?

The table below show study abroad vacancies at our partner institutions for trimester 2 of 2020/21.  It is important to note that not all students will be eligible to study at all these destinations and your programme of study will determine the best location for you.  Check out the Exchange Portfolio to work out which institutions teach your discipline. If you are still unsure, please do contact the Global Mobility Team studyabroad@napier.ac.uk

Do I need to do anything before completing the Study Abroad Application?

Do your research on destinations, modules and costs. MyNapier is a great place to start to find out more about our partner institutions, make sure you check out the Exchange Portfolio.

  • Familiarise yourself with the Outgoing Students Policy and Procedure    
  • Attend one of the weekly Study Abroad 1:1 Appointments. click here to book (We will be running these via webex during the Covid-19  outbreak)
  • Arrange a meeting with your Programme Leader or Academic Study Abroad Adviser to discuss the academic side of your exchange. It’s good to have an idea of the modules you would like to study at your host institution ahead of this meeting.
  • Speak to your funding body (if relevant) about any implications of going on exchange.
  • Speak with your family about your plans.
  • Email studyabroad@napier.ac.uk if you have any additional questions.

Tell me more about the Study Abroad Application

The form can be saved at any time – you do not need to complete it in one go. Make sure you read the important tips, marked blue info button icon.

When completing the form you will need to:

  • State your preferred semester abroad (You will need to select semester 2 for this application round!)

  • Select up to three exchange destinations in order of preference.

  • State what modules you would normally take at Edinburgh Napier during that semester.

  • Propose equivalent modules abroad bearing in mind the required number of credits for each destination. (You should have discussed this with your Programme Leader/ Academic Study Abroad Adviser in advance to ensure an appropriate academic match with your Edinburgh Napier modules).

  • Give an estimated budget in £ sterling for the duration of your exchange.

  • Let us know about any circumstances which could affect your exchange, e.g. medical conditions, disability, lack of prior experience of living independently/travelling abroad 

After you click ‘submit’ your application will automatically go to your Programme Leader or Academic Study Abroad Adviser (PL/ASAA) and you will receive an email with their contact details. At this point you will no longer be able to make any changes to the form. If the PL/ASAA approves your application, you will receive a notification that the form has been forwarded to the Global Mobility Team for consideration. If the application is not approved at this stage, you will receive an email asking you to make any changes and resubmit the form (if appropriate). 

How are exchange places allocated?

Decisions on the allocation of exchange places are made by the Global Mobility Team in conjunction with relevant academic staff. The following selection criteria will apply:

  • Academic performance (main criterion)

  • Evidence of research into the selected destinations (modules, semester dates, institutional profile, motivation for each choice)

  • Attendance record

  • Evidence of realistic financial expectations for the exchange

When will I find out what my exchange destination is?

The Global Mobility Team will contact you regarding the outcome of your application within 2-3 weeks of the May 8, 2020 application deadline. If there are any queries about your application, we will contact you on your university email address.  Applicants with early exchange start dates will be contacted first.  If successful, at this stage you will be given the name of the institution to which you will be nominated, but your place is not guaranteed until you have completed their institutions application form.  You will be advised when you need to do this.

What happens next?

Please check your university email regularly for a message telling you about next steps.  We will prioritise working with students with the most imminent exchange start dates, and will let you know about the deadline for applying to your host university. We will also invite you to the Get Ready 2 Go event ahead of your exchange. This is a compulsory event hosted by the Global Mobility Team.
