How to apply for semester-length programs

Semester Exchange and Independent Study Abroad

The application process differs depending on whether you want to apply for an overseas exchange with one of our partners, a Global Intercampus Program, a short-term program run by your faculty, an internship or another opportunity.

Below is a step-by-step on how to apply for semester exchange and study abroad (except Japan).

Please note that you are only permitted to have one active semester-length application per period (i.e. you can't have both a Semester Exchange application and an Independent Study Abroad application for the same starting period), nor can you have an application for different application cycles with the same starting period (i.e. you can't have an application for Semester 1, 2024 and Sem 1 + Sem 2, 2024). You are permitted to apply for a Global Intercampus Program concurrently with another semester-length application.

Applications are assessed on a rolling basis, as overseas universities operate on different calendars from country to country. Each university has its own nomination deadlines and processes, and IECs work through these in consecutive order.
