The University of Abertay Dundee welcomes students from Erasmus Charter institutions in the European Union who wish to undertake an academic year of study in Dundee through its EU Articulation Scheme.
The EU Articulation Scheme provides opportunities for EU citizens who are students of EU universities (EU Erasmus Charter institutions) to spend one academic year or semester at the University of Abertay Dundee. The Scheme is part of the University’s policy to increase its links with networks of European universities. The Scheme is similar to an Erasmus programme but, unlike Erasmus, does not require an exchange of students. Consequently the University can accept more EU students than the number of outgoing UK students.
Through this Scheme it is hoped that EU students will help us to raise greater awareness of Europe within our academic community and thus encourage more UK students to participate in Erasmus programmes.
Depending on their previous studies, EU students can choose to join either the third year (Semester 5 and 6) or the fourth year (Semester 7 and 8) of one of our undergraduate degree programmes. There are also a limited number of places available on certain Masters degrees.
Using the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), we will recognise the credits awarded by your home university so that, when you successfully complete the year at UAD, you will be awarded 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits plus the UAD’s bachelors degree or diploma:
In this way EU students can gain a double qualification by graduating with both a diploma or degree from the University of Abertay Dundee and a degree from their home university.
