Only in the most exceptional circumstances will we accept late arrivals.

Examinations are usually held during the last 2-3 weeks of each semester. Students are required to stay at Manchester until they have finished their exams. Language of instruction Courses catalogue on internet English oad/courseunits/subjectlist/ Course selection The majority of Erasmus students are expected to take courses within the pre-agreed departmental exchange. If any courses are required outside this agreement these must be agreed BEFORE the student arrives. Students are expected to undertake a workload which is equivalent to that of a Manchester undergraduate studying for an honors degree: UK credits (50-60 ECTS) over an academic year, or UK credits (25 30 ECTS) for a single semester. Where students are undertaking a supervised project or work determined by their home university this should be clearly indicated with their learning agreement including an indication of ECTS Credits associated with the work. This can then be taken into consideration when determining the workload here at Manchester. Accommodation information Erasmus students coming for one full year are guaranteed university accommodation; their application form must be received by the Accommodation Office no later than 31 st July. Erasmus students coming for one semester MAY apply for university accommodation, however, as this is not guaranteed, we strongly advise looking at private sector housing.

Language proficiency All Erasmus students are expected to have sufficient knowledge of the English language and we ask that in selecting students that our Erasmus partners ensure that this is the case. For most subject areas, students are expected to have the equivalent of IELTS 6.0 with no less than 5.0 in any one component or a minimum TOEFL score of 550 (213 on the computer-based test). Please note that some subject areas eg. Law, Management, Medicine and Life Sciences require IELTS 7 or a minimum TOEFL score of 600 (250 on the computer-based test). Some subject areas will require students to provide evidence of English language ability. The University Language Centre offers pre-session courses in English Language throughout the summer as well as courses during the academic semester. These include a number of broader courses for students who wish to continue to improve their English within the context of learning more about Manchester life and culture, business English etc. uagecourses/ Orientation Additional Comments Orientation is held immediately before the start of each semester and we strongly encourage all Erasmus students to attend: ervices/orientationcourses/ Transcripts for Erasmus students are produced by the home department here at Manchester and not by the Study Abroad Unit. Credits listed against courses on the web and in course material are UK credits not ECTS credits. For ECTS credits, please divide UK credits by two, e.g 10 UK credits are equivalent to 5 ECTS credits. Weitere Links dunit/
