Exchange Students Guide 


Can I change my classes?

You’re asked to complete a curriculum choice form/learning agreement before you arrive at Strathclyde. This is a provisional list of your selected classes and can be changed if necessary.

You can change classes in the first two weeks of the semester through our online portal ‘Pegasus’. However, you should try to make informed choices before you arrive because changing classes once term has begun, can be disruptive.

Occasionally, you might need to change classes because you discover the class you've chosen is too advanced, replicates a class you’ve already taken at your home university, or is not available. It's important to make staff aware of this as early as possible, so that changes can be made without disrupting your studies too much.

How will I be assessed?

Exams take place in December and May

Most Speech and Language Pathology classes use a mixture of continuous assessment (practical report/essay etc) and a final exam.

There are two exam periods at the University of Strathclyde: December for semester 1 classes, and May for semester 2 classes. You should make sure you’re available to take these exams.

However, if you cannot be here in December/May to sit the end of term exam please notify your academic adviser, when you arrive Strathclyde and an alternative assessment can be arranged.

Who can help if I need further advice?

Before you arrive at Strathclyde, please contact anja.kuschmann@strath.ac.uk, academic advisor for visiting students.

Anja will be your academic point of contact throughout your stay and will be happy to provide advice and support.
