  • Aisling Conboy International Exchanges and
    Partnerships Coordinator

Where can I study?
  • Europe Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland,
  • Canada Montreal
  • Mexico Tec de Monterray
  • All partners are listed on our website
  • Please note that you can either go through a
    business school exchange, or through the
    International and Graduate Office. Application
    deadlines are the same. For information on IGO
    opportunities please contact Allison Handley

Do I have to study abroad?
  • Study abroad is optional for year 3 IBML students
  • All IBML students have to study abroad in year 4
  • Going abroad in both years can give you the
    advantage of studying and living in 2 countries
    that have different languages
  • Therefore - Yr3 - OPTIONAL
  • - Yr4 - COMPULSORY

Will I receive funding for my year abroad?
  • Students who study abroad on Erasmus are entitled
    to a grant for up to 10 months study
  • If you receive an Erasmus grant in yr 3 you are
    not entitled to a grant in yr 4
  • Students are only entitled to one Erasmus grant
    for study in total
  • As study abroad is compulsory in your fourth year
    make sure that you consider the financial
    implications of study abroad for 2 years

  • For students studying French you may wish to go
    to Lausanne in Switzerland. The Swiss government
    operate a shadow Erasmus scheme where you can
    receive a grant equivalent to Erasmus
  • You may receive the Swiss grant for a year of
    study and the Erasmus grant for a further year,
    thus receiving funding for 2 years study in

When to I apply?
  • Application deadline is February 1st 2007
  • You are not guaranteed your first choice, need to
    put your preferences on the application form
  • You need to make sure that the university you are
    applying to offers the classes you need (IBML 3)
  • We will do our best to match your preferences,
    though some destinations may be more in demand
    than others

What forms do I fill in?
  • 1 - Application Form - You will fill a form in
    indicating your preferences and also curriculum
    forms, signed by your departments to approve the
    class choices
  • 2 - Curriculum Choice Forms - You must find
    matches for your classes you would have taken in
    year 3 at Strathclyde and seek department

How long can I study abroad for?
  • We recommend that you study abroad for one year
    as you will have just settled in at you new host
    university and then have to leave again
  • Staying for a year gives you more opportunities
    to travel during holidays etc
  • You have the option of either an academic year or
    a semester abroad
  • If you go away for a semester you will also spend
    a semester at Strathclyde. E.g. France for
    semester 1 and Strathclyde for semester 2 or
    Strathclyde semester 1 and France semester 2

Will my credits transfer?
  • IBML yr3 You need to take the equivalent
    classes to what you would take at Strathclyde in
    year 3 of your course
  • The year abroad is not a holiday and you will
    have to work hard and pass all your classes that
    are approved before you go
  • We will receive a transcript of your grades and
    decide whether you have passed the year at the
    end of your studies overseas and make a
    recommendation to the exam board at Strathclyde
    on your progress

What do our students say?
  • Studying abroad in Germany was and will always
    be the best year of my life. Being able to
    integrate yourself into a foreign culture and
    become more independent is a great feeling. Going
    home is the only bad thing! I would recommend it
    to anyone."Cameron MacInnes, IBML student,
    University of Mannheim, Germany (2006-07)

What do our students say?
  • "Studying abroad really gives you the opportunity
    to develop your language skills. Learning and
    working in a foreign language means you are
    continuously learning new vocabulary and will
    give you greater confidence to speak it
    too."Iain Stewart, IBML, Bordeaux Ecole de
    Management, France (2006-07)

What do our students say?
  • "The best part about studying abroad was meeting
    new people from all over Europe and experiencing
    a new culture. I would recommend that everyone
    does it because it turns out to be the best year
    of your is so much fun and seriously
    changes your outlook and improves your
    language."Rachel King, IBML, University of
    Granada, Spain (2006-07)
