Once you have found a university that either UCR or UU has an exchange program with, you should fill out the Exchange Request form
. Your tutor must sign this application to indicate they support your initial plans. After that you have to submit your application to the Board of Examiners, which will review your application.
In most cases, the deadline for handing in this form is the Friday before Fall break
- If you are planning to go on exchange during a Fall, then this would be exactly one year before you'd be on exchange.
- If you are planning to go to a UU program during a Spring, this would be one-and-a-half years before going on exchange (e.g. if you want to on exchange in Spring 2019, then the deadline would be Friday 12 October, 2018).
- If you are planning to go to a UCR program during a Spring, while it is advisable to start as early as possible, it is in some cases possible to get approval until the beginning of the Fall semester before you leave. Contact the Exchange Officer for more information on program-specific deadlines.
If you fulfil all of the requirements, you will get approval from UCR within a few weeks to continue your application.
