First year students can start planning their Study Abroad year right now. The deadline for applying will be in early December of the second year so this is a good time to think about destinations and which universities are a good match for subjects of study.

To study abroad you need to have a good academic and disciplinary standing, which is why undergraduate students going abroad do so in their third year of study, for example, after having successfully studied four semesters in their degree programme, and need to fulfil the requirements for progressing to Honours in their degree subject area. The University of Glasgow’s Study Abroad team in conjunction with the ASBS subject mobility coordinators help you to explore your semester and academic year opportunities.
