Preparation by the UCL Study Abroad Team
The Study Abroad Team in UCL Registry (SAT) coordinates the Study Abroad Preparation Programme, which is a compulsory requirement for all second-year UCL students wishing to study abroad. This preparation programme, which you follow during your second year, is monitored and appears on your transcript as a non-assessed (pass/fail only) Second-Year course unit (code: STAO001A). You must fulfil the programme to be able to proceed to your YA.
You must also familiarize yourself with the Study Abroad Student Handbook, compiled by the Study Abroad Team and distributed to you by your Year-Abroad Tutor during the spring term. Read this guide carefully as it details all matters of a general nature about which you will need to know and on which you need to act.
In the Study Abroad Student Handbook you will also find details of the various forms and documents which you will be required to return to the International Office during your time abroad. These include:
- Confirmation of Arrival/Departure forms, to be completed by you, signed and stamped by the organization or institution you are attending, and returned to the Study Abroad Team at the beginning and end of your placement(s).
- the UCL Study Abroad Questionnaire, an online evaluation questionnaire covering all aspects of your year abroad, which you must complete at the end of your time abroad.
- Erasmus paperwork (where applicable).
