If you are a first year student interested in trading in your Canberra winter for an English summer, you should consider studying at the University of East Anglia in the medieval city of Norwich, England. With a broad range of four week programs available, this short course has something for everyone.
Students can spend their time studying:
- Branding, Advertising and Digital Marketing
- Creative Writing
- Digital Animation
- Global Media and Communications Law
- Modern Conflict Archaeology and the Friendly Invasion
- Reading Shakespeare's England
- Religion and Rebellion: Medieval East Anglia
Under the ANU PRIMO first-year learning abroad programs, successful applicants will be automatically considered for one of the available grants. The program is funded partially under the Australian government Endeavour grant scheme and partially under the ANU Vice Chancellor's Travel grants scheme. Grants are worth AUD $3,000 each.
To be eligible for one of the Endeavour grants, you must:
- be an Australian citizen or permanent resident;
- be in your first year of undergraduate study at the time of the application;
- seek "credit" approval from an academic advisor of your College.
To be eligible for one of the VC Travel Grants, you must:
- Be in your first year of undergraduate study at the start of the program;
- Seek credit approval from an academic advisor of your College to be eligible for the grant.
First year students are considered to be students who commenced undergraduate university study in 2018 and/or who have completed 48 units or less at the start of the program. International students will be prioritised for VC travel grants as they are not eligible for Endeavour.
Later-year students are welcome to apply for the program directly to UEA, but cannot be considered for one of the grants - however, later-year students who participate in this program are eligible for the £2,395 partner discount rate.
Students can receive 6 units of credit (equivalent to one semester-long course) for their UEA studies. Students should contact their college when applying to discuss credit options. This is based on students taking a course worth 10 ECTS. Credit details for each course can be found in the module outlines.
It is a condition of the PRIMO first-year learning abroad program grants associated with this global study opportunity that students receive academic credit for the course within their ANU degree. Credit transfer arrangements must be validated and observed by your ANU college(s) and you must receive prior confirmation from your ANU college(s) that you will receive academic credit upon successful completion of this external course.
FeesPlease note that the grant will not cover the entire cost of the program. You will need to consider airfares, tuition fees, accommodation, visa fees etc. For more information about costs and what’s included, have a look at the program fees webpage.
All ANU students (including direct applications from later-year students) are eligible for their partner discount rate of £2,395. The full details of what this fee includes can be found on the UEA website. Students pay tuition directly to UEA and do not pay tuition to ANU for this program.
Application ProcessThere are two simple steps to applying for a PRIMO program:
- Tell us in about 150 words how this opportunity will enrich or enhance your studies at ANU and how this opportunity will benefit you personally.
- For the UEA International Summer School, you will also be asked to write a brief, 100-200 word statement to outline your academic achievements
- Seek approval from your academic college to receive ANU credit for this program.
- You can do so using the "PRIMO College Approval Form" available in the learning content section of the online application for this program. Students must upload the signed "PRIMO College Approval Form" with this application to be considered.
If a student's college does not approve academic credit for this experience they cannot be considered as an eligible applicant for grants. For students with more than one college, only one college needs to give approval.
Applications open on 12 February 2018 and will close on 13 April 2018 and you should first apply directly to ANU Global Programs.
If you are selected by ANU Global Programs to take part in the course, you will then have to submit an application to the institution before 1 May 2018.
Later Year Students
Later year students should apply directly to UEA. Later years students are required to meet all eligibility requirements set by the partner, including any GPA requirements. Later year students are welcome to email Global Programs at email@example.com after applying to the partner in order to be included in pre-departure information and events.
