    I realise that they are on each universities websites, but do you have to sign up for them off your own back, or do the staff advertise them to you and ask for anyone who's interested at some point during your degree?

    Thanks

    I don't know about how other students go about studying abroad, but I do languages and we had a series of presentations at the beginning of second year about what the choices were.

    At the universities I applied for they said you can just wait up to the end of second year and speak to the head of department for advice.

    Languages courses will guide you through the process qith a fair bit of help and support.

    If you're not doing a language and are just interested in taking part in an exchange or year abroad then search your university website for "erasmus" - someone or a team of someones will usually be responsible for managing the erasmus (and non-erasmus) partnerships with universities to study abroad at. Find their website and details at your uni and they'll be able to give you all the information you need and help you with the process.

    i think it depends on your uni, I'm at kcl and it wasn't as though my department particularly advertised it (pretty much the majority of departments here offer it), but theres the same deadline for everyone who wants to go so its more something i had to keep up with myself - everything was online but i just had to sort out references and stuff.
    im guessing its different if you're doing languages and have to go though

    We had a speaker come in at the end of a few of our lecturers to give info about it and then I contacted them about the application process and deadlines and whatnot. A lot of the whole procedure is doing stuff off your own back.
