Information for Partners

The International Exchanges Office coordinates student and staff mobility under the Erasmus+ programme, including the management of inter-institutional agreements and administration of incoming and outgoing students. We also manage student study abroad and exchanges with partners in the US, Korea, Japan, Australia and China.

Requests for information from institutional partners should be directed either to the Exchanges Mailbox.

The following information provides guidance on how the exchanges are managed in Bangor:

The Application Form must be returned by the appropriate deadline as specified below:

Starting in Semester 2

The application form, along with the accommodation request form can be sent electronically via email; we do not need a hard copy.

Accommodation

We guarantee accommodation for Study Abroad exchange, and Erasmus+ students for 2019/20 whose home university is outside of Europe. Those wishing to apply for our on-campus accommodation must do so by the deadlines specified in the guidebook. For those students not wishing to reside in university halls may seek assistance from Student Housing Office who will provide details of private accommodation in and around the Bangor area.

Modules & Credits

All Study Abroad exchange students can take a maximum of 30 ECTS credits per semester (60 Bangor Credits) and are required to study a minimum of 25 ECTS/50 Bangor Credits per semester. Exchange students studying at Bangor University for the full academic year, must take at least 50 ECTS (100 Bangor Credits).

Students are requested to use our online catalogue of modules to research their choice of modules before their arrival, where possible their selection and registration will be finalised before arrival.

Examinations/Assessments

Exchange students are required to fulfil the full assessment requirements of modules and may not request alternative assessments because of language ability. Students are required to fulfil the assessment criteria as a home student. Credit cannot be given for attendance only.

Transcripts

Official transcripts are produced either in March for Semester One Only Students or in August for whole Academic Year Students and Semester Two Only Students and are sent to the Partner Institution. We also send a copy of the Transcript of Records to the student if permitted by the Institution.
