Study Abroad and Work Placement
Pre-Departure Briefing
20 April 2016
Section 1:
Your Academic Programme
Abroad
All students who will be
studying for credit at another
university in 2016-2017.
A New Academic Culture
Dr Stephen Tyre
Pro Dean (Advising)
Faculty of Arts and Divinity
Academic Culture
Be prepared for different styles of teaching and learning e.g.
•
•
•
•
Different expectations with regard to written work
Different class types and sizes
More or less contact time
Different modes of assessment
Academic culture will vary across all of our partner
institutions
Academic Culture
Familiarise yourself as much as possible before you start:
• Attend any School or CSA briefing sessions
• Speak to students who have been already
• Research academic guidance on the host institution
website
• Read any orientation materials from your host
institution
Academic Culture
When you arrive:
• Attend any orientation sessions for visiting students
• Use academic support available at the host institution
e.g. is there an academic support unit similar to
CAPOD?
• Use office hours where available
Academic Culture
DO:
• Seek help when you need it
• Remember that you are entitled to the same support as
regularly enrolled students at the host institution AND
that you are subject to the same rules and regulations
DON’T:
• Make assumptions based on your experience at St
Andrews – check local policies e.g.
• What is the host’s policy on late submission of work?
Academic Culture
The first few weeks at your host institution may be
challenging – allow yourself time to settle in
If you think about coming home:
• Give yourself time to think about your options carefully
• Seek advice from your Study Abroad Co-ordinator and
CSA
NB It is extremely unlikely that you will be able to join
the St Andrews semester after week 2
The WIYA Dissertation
• Related to the country or area
• Supervisor in St Andrews
• Topic to be approved by November
• Submitted in May

Pre-advising
• If you are studying abroad for a full year, you should
not pre-advise on the St Andrews system
• If you are studying abroad for one semester, you
should pre-advise now for the semester you will
spend in St Andrews
Credit and Grade Conversion
Alan Dearle
Dean of Science
Kinds of external placement
• With integrated year abroad:
• 60 credits WIYA (dissertation)
• External placement:
• 120 credits (Biology Chemistry etc.)
• Study overseas Year abroad:
• 120 credits
The Process
• All subjects to be studied overseas must be agreed as part of your
learning agreement.
• Provisional agreement must be made before travelling overseas
• You must confirm your choices once enrolled overseas and this must
be signed off by your Study Abroad Co-ordinator
[email protected]
• Print, sign and return your approved Learning Agreement to CSA no
later than four weeks after arrival at your host institution
The Learning Agreement
Failure to return it within the four week timeframe will have terrible
consequences
The Learning Agreement
Failure to return it within the four week timeframe will have terrible
consequences:
• Any credits awarded overseas will not be recognised by St Andrews.
• Students would remain liable for tuition fees for the semester(s) of study
abroad.
• Permission to study abroad in Semester Two would be withdrawn (if
applicable) and students would be expected to return to St Andrews.
• Erasmus+ students would be required to return their Erasmus Mobility Grant
to the University.
The Learning Agreement
• The learning agreement is available to download from the
Collaboration & Study Abroad webpages
https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/studyabroad/outgoingstudents
Before you go
• Familiarise yourself with the Policy on credits
and grade conversions for study abroad.
www.st-andrews.ac.uk/studyabroad/outgoingstudents/CreditandGradeConversion
• Ask your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s) before you go abroad if you
have any questions.
• Discuss any circumstances likely to affect academic performance with
your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s).
Module Choices
• You must enrol in a normal full-time load at the host institution
• Students must take appropriate recognised subjects
• Modules should provide adequate preparation for the next level at St
Andrews
• Language modules for international students do not count toward
the normal credit load
• No allowance will be made in grade conversion for unauthorised
over-reaching
While you are abroad
• Any subsequent changes to your programme whilst abroad must be
approved by your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s) and an amended
Learning Agreement completed and returned to CSA
• Signal any academic problems you encounter while you are away AT
ONCE to your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s) in St Andrews
• Before you leave your host institution, ensure you follow any
procedures in order to allow them to release your transcript to St
Andrews. No credit will be transferred until we receive an official
transcript of your results
Grade Conversion
• Grades awarded by other institution are converted to St Andrews
grades on return.
• All approved modules will be converted back; there will be no
retrospective discounting of credits
• The partner institutions’ grades are taken as accurate.
• Application of the standard conversion rate is expected by the Deans.
• Any departures from standard conversion rates are EXCEPTIONAL and
have to be fully explained and justified by the School
On your return to St Andrews
• Submit any evidence you wish your School to consider in the grade
conversion process to your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s) by the end
of Week 2 in the semester immediately following your Study Abroad
period(s).
• Bring back copies of your work
• In case a second round of grading is necessary (next slides)
• Conversions effected in Schools using Standard Conversion Tables
• Proposed conversions submitted to the Deans for approval of methodology
used
• Approved credit and grade conversions added to your student record and
used in degree classification
Grade Conversion
• Where an overseas marking band covers more than one St Andrews
grade, the default conversion will be the lower of the St Andrews
grades.
• For higher grades, supporting information and further evidence
required, e.g.
• Class position
• Tutors’ notes (advisory only)
• Proposed conversions above the base level must be based on evidence and
academic judgement
Querying Grades
• While abroad:
• To contest a grade obtained during Study Abroad, take the matter up
immediately with your host institution.
• It will be dealt with under local rules at the partner institution before you
leave. The partner institution’s rules will apply.
• On return to St Andrews:
• A student appeal against the St Andrews conversion of study abroad grades
should be lodged with the Head of School within five working days of the
results being posted on your student record by Registry.
All outbound STUDY students must:
• Choose modules carefully, in consultation with your Schools, and as
far in advance as possible
• Complete and return a Learning Agreement within four weeks of
commencing your placement
• Keep in touch with your Study Abroad Co-ordinator(s)
