How to apply

Our step by step guide to applying for study abroad.


Applying to study abroad is a competitive process.

In order to be considered for the programme, you need to meet the selection criteria below:

  • 50% minimum average mark (credit-weighted).
  • Submission of application form and personal statement by application deadline.
  • Academic reference to support application.

For Korean and Japanese language students, you will receive information about applying to Study Abroad from staff in your academic school, but our Study Abroad team is still here to help. Feel free to make an appointment whenever you need additional support.

For all other students, follow our step by step guide below.
