Study abroad for incoming students

The study abroad programme is ideal for undergraduate students from outside the UK who want to spend a period of time studying in the UK, while earning credits to transfer back to their home institution.

The Programme is taught at Levels 1 and 2, and is suited to students who have completed their first or second years of a four-year degree programme. Modules are available across most disciplines and are part of the regular undergraduate curriculum enabling study abroad students to study alongside students studying a full degree at Brunel University London.

An agreement between Brunel University London and your home university is not necessary; students are able to apply from any university as fee-paying students.

You can join Brunel University London for a full academic year or for one term only.

An academic year of study runs from September to the end of May and consists of three terms; two teaching periods of 12 weeks each (autumn and spring) and the summer period of revision and exams. This option is the most flexible and gives you a choice (subject to timetabling and prerequisites) of almost all undergraduate degree modules in Levels 1 and 2, from a range of arts, social sciences, and sport sciences disciplines.

The autumn term option runs for the 12 weeks of the first term from late September to mid-December. 

The spring Term option begins in January and runs for the 12 weeks of the second term, followed by the summer period of revision and exams. 

For international students who are unable to study abroad for a full academic year, this option offers the possibility of study for a shorter period of time from a more limited range of existing single term modules in Levels 1 and 2.
