It’s absolutely normal to find parts of your exchange really difficult and we often find that with the right support put in place students go on to have a really successful experience.
We will only approve students to change institution if one of two conditions is met:
- You are unable to satisfy your academic programme requirements due to lack of appropriate course offerings by the host institution;
- You transferred to a different degree programme at Edinburgh and in order to meet the requirements of the new degree programme you would need to undertake a part of your year at a different institution.
While returning to Edinburgh part way through the year may be an option, it is not guaranteed and depends on a variety of factors including course availability at Edinburgh and the number of courses completed at the partner institution. As such we will always explore other options first.
