Next steps and contact details

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

Applications will be due at the beginning of the second term for all Erasmus+ and international exchange opportunities the following year. So if you're starting at ARU in September 2018, applications will be due in January 2019.

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 and by the end of April for those applying by the final deadline. 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.


For study abroad during 2019/20 (either Term 1 or Term 2), the priority deadline is 31 January 2019.

The final deadline for any remaining exchange places is 29 March 2019.

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.
