You can apply to spend a semester or academic year at one of our partner universities as part of your Aberystwyth University degree. It doesn't add any time to your degree, but replaces a portion of your time at Aberystwyth. This will usually be during your second year of study and all grades obtained at the partner university will be converted to their AU equivalent and contribute to your degree.
