UCL has many partnerships with institutions in these countries, with new agreements being developed on an annual basis.
A list of destinations where UCL students have spent time can be found on the UCL Students Abroad website.
You should aim to study in a country where you can further your foreign language learning. Ideally, you will continue with your Pathway specialisms, but studying them in your Core language. However, we recognise that in some cases this will place overly strong demands on your level of language. In such cases, and if approved by UCL, you may choose to study at a university abroad which teaches in English while selecting modules that will keep your pathway knowledge fresh so that you return ready to start on courses on your final year.
Many overseas courses are offered in English or you may prefer to study in the language of the country of your choice.
The marks you achieve will not count directly towards your degree; instead they form part of your performance documentation which you must present upon completion of your year abroad together with a progress portfolio and self-evaluation. The mark which does count towards your degree is your 1-unit Year Abroad dissertation which you submit in the month of June following your study abroad (and prior to taking up your UK internship).
While we cannot always guarantee it, we aim to ensure as far as possible that you are placed in your 1st choice of university.
