Other requirements

 

  • Currently an undergraduate student
  • Completion of the designated short-term programme
  • Submission of a programme report by the designated deadline
  • Response to an evaluation questionnaire by the designated deadline
  • For merit-based funding provided by Registry offices in support of study abroad, each student is only eligible to receive a value that equals the largest award. Should the student receive more than one award, he/she may be required to return the prior award to the University. This is to ensure that scholarship funds benefit more than a small number of students.
