L'Università di Leeds comunica che ...

Dear Partner,

The Study Abroad Office would like to keep you informed of what is happening in our office and with Study Abroad exchanges on a regular basis so we hope you will be interested to read the following news. Please also check our website which is updated regularly:

* Firstly, Liz Simpson is due to have a baby at the beginning of November so will be taking a year's maternity leave from October 17th. Helen Burdette will be taking over from Liz for the coming year and will be based in the Study Abroad Office. Helen will be contacting our 'worldwide' exchange partners shortly regarding exchange balances/numbers for 2009-10.
* Joana Ricardo joined the Study Abroad Team in August as a part-time member of staff, helping with advising outgoing students and also assisting Alison Hughes with incoming applications during our busier periods.
Admissions and application deadlines for students applying to Leeds:
* The application deadline for students wishing to study in Leeds from January (semester 2) is October 31st.
* We are pleased that the new application process for incoming students has been launched and the first round of students, applying for semester 2 of 2008-09, are using the system. Academic schools are starting to make decisions on students' module choices and 'confirmation of programmes' will be sent to the applicants shortly.
Please note: Students using the new application form need to select the accurate 'admission year' at the outset of the form. For example students applying for January 2009 start, should select the 2008-09 admission year rather than the 2009-10 admission year. Applicants who select the incorrect admission year will be contacted by email and asked to submit another application for the correct year so we can track it accurately.
* October and November are a busy time of year in the Study Abroad Office for events for outgoing students, past and future. On the 9th of October we held our Welcome Back Reception for students who studied abroad in 2007/08 where International Director Judith Lamie awarded the prizes for the Study Abroad competitions and students enjoyed a glass of wine and the opportunity to catch-up with each other after a year away. All of our students had a great year, so thank you for all of your hard work in helping to make our students' experiences a success!
* October is our peak time for getting out to departments to spread the word about Studying Abroad. Drop-in sessions in departments are well under way, giving students the opportunity to come along and chat with Study Abroad staff and former outgoing students. Our application deadline for outgoing students is November 28th after which we will begin the selection process and begin to send you details of the students who have applied to your respective universities for 2009-10.

We are looking forward to another busy year in Study Abroad and working with all of our partners, and we hope that you will enjoy being part of our exciting exchanges!

Kind Regards,

The Study Abroad Team.
