UC Global Exchange Application Deadline – extended to 1 October!

Did assignments get in the way of your Global Exchange application? 

Great news, the deadline to apply for the UC Global Exchange Programme in Semester 2 2020 has been extended to 1 October 2019*!

Our Global Exchange programme is a unique opportunity, allowing you to study for either a semester or a year at one of our many partner universities, as part of your UC degree! And with over 60 partner universities around the globe you can choose to study in some amazing locations, including Singapore, France and Denmark, to the UK, USA and more.

The great thing about our Global Exchange programme is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not to the partner university. We also offer a travel award to eligible students participating in the 2020 Global Exchange programme (terms and conditions apply).

*Please note that if places are limited at partner universities, priority will be given to students who applied by the original 1 September deadline. Some universities may have early deadlines, see website above for details.

Take a peek into Peking University

Applications are now open for UC’s 2019 ‘Explore Beijing’ programme.

Organised in collaboration with Peking University, this five-week will see 10 UC students exploring Beijing while studying at one of China’s most prestigious universities.

Hear all about it from someone who experienced it first-hand, BSc/BA student, Alysha Voon.

I spent six incredible weeks in China as part of the Explore Beijing Summer programme. Looking back, I cannot believe the amount of excitement and happiness I felt, as well as the knowledge and friendships I have gained from this overseas experience.

Peking University is regarded as China’s top university, and every day we were amazed at what it has to offer – a huge range of canteens (craving burgers and chips? ‘Hollywood Canteen’ has you covered!), grocery stores, a laundromat and unbelievable scenery.

We attended classes where we gained valuable insight and got a first-hand taste of China’s unique culture through language lessons, calligraphy and tai chi.  Outside of campus, we visited some of China’s most famous, breath taking history such as the great wall, forbidden- city and the Olympic stadium, tested our taste buds in a street full of edible bugs and crazy creations, and travelled down south to Guangzhou for a few days and witnessed the diverse range in food, language and culture China has to offer.

Spending time in this unique environment offered me valuable experience with new and improved skills in a range of areas that will no doubt benefit me in the future. I cannot emphasis enough how amazing an opportunity it is and what a student programme like this has to offer – so if you’re thinking of applying, just do it!

Applications for this year’s programme, running from 15 November to Sunday 22 December, close on Sunday 21 July.
