ERASMUS Nominations and Applications

Log on to our nomination portal Mobility Online.

In addition to completing an online application, applicants will require to upload the following supporting documents:-

Guide to Selecting Classes

Exchange students usually take classes/courses amounting to 60 Strathclyde credits (30 ECTS credits) per semester. This is considered a regular full-time load.

You should list all the classes you are interested in taking in order of preference in your online application (no more than 6 per semester). 60% of them should be from the same department or subject area. (For students applying under ERASMUS, at least 60% of the classes should be from the department which owns the agreement.) This will be your primary host department at Strathclyde during your exchange. You may be able to select one or two classes from another department if you meet the prerequisites and if the other department approves them.

You can only select classes from a maximum of two departments to provide the best chance of them timetabling effectively. In some cases, it may not be possible to confirm your secondary classes until you arrive.

It is highly recommended that all applicants have some flexibility around their classes in case any of them need to be changed on arrival.

For details of available classes/courses, please refer to the Guide to Selecting Classes
