  Study Abroad Application

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

When can I apply?

The Global Mobility team are advertising available spots for trimester 2 of 2018/19 at Edinburgh Napier’s partner institutions across the world so have a look at the tables below and if interested, get moving now!

Exchange Clearing application deadline – 1 June 2018


What is the application process?

There are two stages to applying:

1. Online Study Abroad Application, i.e. internal Edinburgh Napier form (see below)
2. Direct application to the allocated host university.

These two stages may be up to 10 months apart depending on the start date of your exchange.

The main deadline for the first application is 20 December but may be earlier for some programmes - check with your Programme Leader or Academic Study Abroad Adviser.

​The application deadline to your allocated university is set by your host institution and will depend on when you intend to start your exchange (semester1/full year or semester 2). You will be advised of the deadline via email by the Global Mobility team or your host university.

Where can I go?

The tables below show study abroad vacancies at our partner institutions for trimester 2 of 2018/19.  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.  If you’re not sure where you can go (and the tables below don’t help) then the Global Mobility team can advise you on the best location for you.

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

  • Do your research on destinations, modules and costs. MyNapier ‘Exchange’ pages and the Exchange Portfolio are a good place to start
  • Book and attend one of the weekly Exchange Appointments
  • Arrange a meeting with your Programme Leader or Academic Study Abroad Adviser to discuss the academic side of your exchange
  • Speak to your funding body (if relevant) about any implications of going on exchange
  • Speak with your family about your plans
  • Make use of opportunities to meet former exchange students

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 with a blue ‘i’!

When completing the form you will need to:

  • State your preferred semester(s) abroad (April/May applicants, please note that only semester 2 is available to you)
  • Select up to three exchange destinations in order of preference.    
  • State what modules you would normally take at Edinburgh Napier
  • 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?

Decision on the allocation of exchange places is 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
  • Suitability as an ambassador for Edinburgh Napier University

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 after the 1 June 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 there is not guaranteed until you have completed their own application form.  (You will be advised when you need to do this.)  

What happens next?

Please check your university email address 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 a compulsory ‘Get Ready to Go’ (pre-departure briefing) which will be taking in April 2018 for Semester 1/full year exchanges, and November 2018 for Semester 2 exchanges.   

Apply Now

If you are a direct entrant then please get in touch with the Global Mobility team studyabroad@napier.ac.uk first for advice on how to submit your application.
