Incoming students


This section provides information for students at our partner universities in other countries who are considering a study experience in the department of Politics and History at Brunel University.

If you wish to come to Brunel University you should contact the relevant International co-ordinator and/or the International Relations Office at your home university to find out about the application procedure and selection process. You will not submit an application to Brunel University until you have been selected by your home institution, who will then provide you with the necessary application form and information about modules. Brunel University regularly sends these to partner institutions.

If you have already been selected and are in the process of completing your application, please read the other sections of our department webpage. Being selected by your home institution is not an absolute guarantee of acceptance by Brunel University. You will need to provide details about your academic record, your proficiency in English and your choice of modules so that the academic selectors at Brunel University can consider your application. The timetable for applications also applies so applications should, if possible, be received by 15th May 2012.

The department of Politics and History at Brunel University can only accept a limited number of International students each year, and these numbers are agreed with co-ordinators at each partner institution in the previous academic year.

Students on exchange schemes are not charged tuition fees at Brunel University.

Courses and assessment

To ensure academic recognition is given by the home university wherever possible, Brunel University uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS. 2 Brunel credits = 1 ECTS credit).

Details of modules and credits can be found here.

Students whose home university has particular requirements restricting their programme of study abroad should ensure details are provided in their application form; we will endeavour to accommodate such requirements when informed about them in advance.

International students are expected to select a programme from the undergraduate modules on offer. In exceptional circumstances suitably qualified students may be considered for postgraduate modules if places are available.
