UCAS applications - QMUL degree with a year abroad
Many QMUL degrees provide opportunities for you to extend the study of your chosen subject with an additional year abroad. This is a rare opportunity to live and study in a different culture, with the support of QMUL and the host university. Experiencing life in another country while you are a student is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Students who study abroad as part of their studies find that it is a deeply enriching experience. Research also proves it enhances future employability and academic success. You can read more at Why Go Abroad?
Studying abroad is both beneficial and challenging. It is important to be well-prepared, in order to gain the most from your study abroad. You will therefore be required to attain a minimum standard in your first year of study. Normally you will be expected to achieve at least a 2.1 (60%) overall in your first year, though this threshold may be set at a higher level for individual programmes. You will also be expected to sustain a high level of attainment in your second year. You will be informed of the detailed conditions for the year abroad by your academic school once you start your degree. If you would like further information before you accept your offer, please contact the relevant academic school here.
Please note if you are applying for a degree on UCAS with a year abroad, the initial entry requirements for with year abroad degrees can be found on the UCAS website.
