International students may apply to enrol as a Study Abroad student for one or more semesters. Study Abroad students are required to pay a set tuition fee at UC.
You’re usually able to apply as a Study Abroad student at UC if:
- You have completed at least one year of university study at a recognised university or college. Students with less than one year of university study may also be eligible in many cases, contact email@example.com for advice
- You have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.8 or higher (on a scale of 4.0), or a B average or higher
If you are a postgraduate student, you will need to provide evidence of your completed undergraduate degree. Please see postgraduate students for more information.
If English is not your first language, you must also meet UC’s English language requirements.
For students coming from Germany for a one or two semester Study Abroad programme, we will also accept a DAAD English test score which meets UC requirements.
Email us if you’re unsure that you meet the requirements set out above, or for any further details.
