Incoming students

Each year, the Adam Smith Business School (ASBS) welcomes a number of exchange students from around the world. Incoming exchange students currently studying Accounting and Finance, Business and Management or Economics at a business school with which ASBS has an exchange agreement can stay for a single semester or a full academic year, to study from a range of modules taught on our undergraduate programmes. Applications are made through your home institution's study abroad or international office.
