Learning Agreement
Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take. In Europe, the number and creditworthiness of the courses vary, so make sure you get precise information. In the UK, the academic system is similar to that in North America, where there are fewer contact hours and about 4 courses to complete. The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for corrections if necessary. The LA is the basis for the recognition of courses at the EBC Hochschule and is therefore binding.

Transcript of Records
Your Transcript of Records, the semester abroad, proves that you have successfully completed the course. The average of your achievements is converted according to the modified Bavarian formula. 20 ECTS are hereby recognised and are included in the overall grade of your studies. At least 20 ECTS must be successfully completed during the semester abroad for recognition at the EBC Hochschule.



Students holding EU citizenship do not need a visa for Great Britain, but check with the UK Council for International Student Affairs as there are special regulations for Romanian and Bulgarian citizens. All other applicants must apply for a visa, even if they live in one of the EU countries. If you are staying in the UK for less than six months and do not want to work there, apply for a student visitor visa using the VAF1D form. You should then ask your host university for a "student visitor visa letter", which you should enclose with your visa application.

Health insurance
As you will be studying in the UK for less than 6 months, you should have a German health insurance policy because you can only use the National Health Service (NHS) in a limited way. For example, ask your health insurance company about supplementary insurance. Expect to pay treatment costs in cash first and then submit the bill to your health insurance company.
