If you're taking part in an exchange programme, you'll typically study abroad for a trimester during your second year. But we recommend that you start planning early in your first term at ARU.

Making your application

Once you've decided on a provisional destination, simply complete an ARU Global application form.

Study Abroad Applications will be due as follows for all Erasmus+ and international exchange opportunities the following year:

  • At the beginning of your second trimester of your first year, if you are a September intake student.
  • At the beginning of your second year, if you are a January intake student.

So if you start at ARU in January 2021 or September 2021, applications will be due by 31st January 2022 (and if you start in January 2022, you will need to apply the following year by 31st January 2023).

We may also have a final round of applications during 2021-22, where students have a further opportunity to apply to study abroad at remaining places, but this will confirmed at a later date.

There are a limited number of places available at each of our Erasmus+ and international exchange partners. Depending on the number of applications received for each partner, it may be a competitive selection process, but we encourage all students to apply.

To be eligible it is vital that you maintain good academic standing; specific requirements vary by university partner. All students will be notified of the outcome of their application, whether successful or not, by the end of March for students applying by the priority deadline of 31 January 2022. You may be offered a place on the waiting list for your selected partner university, or you may be provided with study options at alternate partners depending on availability.


The deadline for the priority round of applications (for a trimester abroad in 2022/23) is 31 January 2022. If your application is successful, you'll need to complete the following:

  1. Accept your nomination place.
  2. Attend ARU Global pre-departure briefings to learn about the next steps required for your application and valuable tips for studying abroad.
  3. Complete your host university application.
  4. Complete and sign the required documentation as requested by ARU Global and your host university before you depart.
  5. Pack your bags and depart for your life-changing experience abroad.
