Students registered for the MEng in Civil Engineering with a Year Abroad (H202) will spend their final year abroad, undertaking an equivalent workload to students of the Host Institution, including an independent research project similar in scope and scale to the project carried out students spending their final year at Imperial. Graduates will be awarded the MEng degree in Civil Engineering with a Year Abroad from Imperial College London (MEng), and the Associateship of the City and Guilds Institute (ACGI).
Securing a placement abroad
Numbers are normally capped at Host institution level, making selection for some partner institutions competitive. For institutions where the language of instruction is not English, it is recommended to register on the Year Abroad course during the application stage, although it may be possible to transfer during the MEng on the approval of the Year Abroad Coordinator, Dr Christian Onof.
To secure a place to study abroad, students are normally expected to achieve an Upper Second Class pass in their first three years of study and have achieved a Level 4 minimum in the relevant language. You will have access to a dedicated Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) resource site to support the application process.
