It is important to meet with an Academic Advisor early in your degree if you are considering exchange as they will be able to help organise your study plan in advance. They will have to pre-approve any subjects that you are considering enrolling in at the partner institution. It is best to leave your electives so you will have flexibility in your subject options abroad.
