How to apply

You can apply to study abroad for the whole academic year or for either the Fall or Spring semester.

Entry requirements

We generally require study abroad students to have completed two years of a university or college degree and have a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Please also note that in order to study some modules you may be required to show background knowledge in that subject area. If you have a query about the suitability of your qualifications please contact us.

Our Study Abroad programme is only available to overseas students from countries outside of the EU wishing to study at Cardiff University for either a semester or a full year as part of their full degree elsewhere.

If you are from the EU and are interested in becoming an occasional student, please email our Admissions Office. If you're not from the EU and would like to apply to us for a full degree, please visit our undergraduate pages.

How to apply

  1. Build your study abroad programme and select your modules from the online module catalogue. You are required to list your provisional module choices by order of preference on your application form, and also select two additional modules in case of timetable clashes.
  2. Apply online referring to the application guidance notes.
