Guidance for partners

We aim to make the application process for your incoming students as smooth as possible as they embark on their Study Abroad experience at the University of Birmingham.

For Erasmus and International Exchange students we request a nomination from our overseas partners for all students who select the University of Birmingham, either for one semester or the full academic year.

Please send details of your nominated students to the Study Abroad team, by completing the nomination form below, which will include their full name, their current subject of study and also the proposed subject area here at the University of Birmingham. Once nominated,  your students will be directed to apply online using our online application form. Students must apply before the deadline so they can be included in our module registration process.

If a student is applying as a study abroad fee-paying student and therefore outside of the exchange agreement, then they can simply apply online before the deadline.

For students wishing to attend Birmingham in 2021/22

Applications for the 2021/22 cycle (for September 2021 and January 2022) are welcome from February 2021.

For the 2021/2022 cycle, our autumn semester nomination deadline is the 31 March 2021 and application deadline is the 30 April 2021 for an admission to the University of Birmingham at any point during the 2021/22 cycle. Please use our online nomination form. Nominations received by email are no longer accepted.

For Admissions to the Spring 2022 semester, we will accept nominations until the 15 October 2021 for entry in Semester 2 only (in January 2022) and the application deadline is 15 November 2021. However we encourage you to send your nominations during the summer via our online nomination form. Nominations received by email are no longer accepted.

Please contact the Study Abroad and Exchanges Team if you anticipate these new deadlines may be challenging for your institution.

Short Term Mobility at the University of Birmingham

If your students wish to study at the University of Birmingham but one semester or a full year duration is too long, then we have our excellent summer school running for three weeks from mid-July to early-August.  You can find out information and contact the team at the Birmingham International Summer School.
