After completing the application form all applicants will be invited for an informal interview with the Student Exchange Office to ensure that you have thought carefully about why you wish to study abroad. During this time you can discuss programme structure and demands.
When allocating places Cass will look at:
- your academic record to date
- your ability to adapt to a different culture and educational environment
- whether you have carried out research on your preferred destination
To receive an offer for the replacement second year or replacement term abroad, you must achieve a minimum of 60% in each of your January examinations and also pass all Year 1 examinations and coursework at the Assessment Board in July. To receive an offer for the sandwich year, you should ideally pass assessments at first attempt. However Cass may consider sandwich year students who have failed up to 30 credits on an individual basis.
