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.

  • If you are a September intake student: at the beginning of your second trimester of your first year (February 2023).
  • If you are a January intake student: at the beginning of your second year (February 2023).

The application deadline for the exchange programme for 2023-2024 is 28 February.

Undergraduate ARU Global application form

There are a limited number of places available at each of our European 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.

If you started any other course in January 2023, you will need to apply by 28 February 2024.

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 April 2023. 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 exchange programme is 28 February 2023. If your application is successful, you'll need to do 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.
