BASc with Study Abroad
UCL has partnerships with institutions in a variety of different countries, with new agreements being developed on an annual basis.
A list of the study abroad destinations currently available to BASc students can be found here.
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 Study Abroad Dissertation which you will need to submit by the first day of the third UCL term (27 April 2015). Further details about the Study Abroad Dissertation can be found here.
While we cannot guarantee it, we aim to ensure as far as possible that you are placed in one of your top choices of university.
