Information for incoming students

We welcome students to join us from partner institutions as part of the Erasmus+ programme.

How to apply

Students wishing to study at the University of West London on Erasmus+ exchange should firstly check that their home institution and UWL have an existing partnership and then contact the Erasmus+/International Office at their home institution for information on their selection process.

Their Erasmus+/International Office will then officially nominate the student and let the UWL Erasmus Office know.

UWL will then invite the interested student to submit a completed application form which includes a list of the modules that the student wishes to study at UWL. Upon receipt, the application will then be considered by the relevant Academic school.

If an offer is made, the student will receive their acceptance letter from UWL’s Admissions Department and will be required to formally accept their offer.

Please note the following deadlines for sending in a complete application:

  • 31 March 2018 for Semester 1 mobility (September 2018)
  • 30 September 2018 for Semester 2 mobility (January 2019)
  • 31 March 2019 for Semester 1 mobility (September 2019)

Accommodation for Incoming Erasmus+ Students

The University of West London offers a number of different types of accommodation. Erasmus+ students would benefit most by applying for Paragon Halls of Residence accommodation, as this will give them first-hand experience of living amongst fellow students from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, and who study across a number of different course disciplines. See the accommodation page for further information, including costs and information on the application process.

It is strongly advised students apply for accommodation as early as possible as the accommodation is offered on a first come, first served basis.

If Paragon Halls of Residence is not the first choice, or if the application is unsuccessful then the University’s dedicated Accommodation team will assist in finding alternative accommodation.

English language

Please note that all incoming students are expected to already have obtained a high level of English before embarking on their studies at the University of West London. We do however offer academic and literacy support, as well as in-sessional English tuition, to all incoming Erasmus students.

All students can take part in:

  • literacy development courses
  • writing workshops
  • tutorials and drop-ins throughout the year.
