- Who is eligible to apply?
To be eligible for an exchange you must achieve an average of 3.0 GPA in stage 1 and stage 2 of your degree. Generally, for students going on exchange in stage 3, the average GPA is calculated as follows:(Stage 1 + Stage 1 + Stage 2 trimester 1) divided by 3.
If you are successful in your application, you will need to have completed 60 credits at Stage 1 including all cores, and at least 50 credits in Stage 2, to be eligible to take your exchange or Erasmus place. N.B. Please note that your progression to stage 4 might be affected if you don’t achieve 60 credits in Stage 2.
- When and for how long can I go abroad?
You can apply to study abroad in a host university for one trimester (either Trimester 1 or Trimester 2) in Stage 3 of your programme.
- How many modules do I need to take and what do I need to study while I am abroad?
As a PPE student, you are required to pass a minimum of 20 ECTS credits at your host institution. However, it is recommended that you attempt up to 30 ECTS at your host institution. While studying at the host university you should study modules in some or all of the PPE subject areas; an equal balance of subjects is not required. Note that this credit quantity might equate to different numbers of modules at different partner universities.
Note: If you take exchange outside of Europe, you will be required to take specific course workload relevant to each university, as outside of Europe institutions don’t use the ECTS system.
