Dear Students who plan to apply for UMAP Program A&B 2019-1 (for Autumn Semester 2019)
We are pleased to announce that the first cycle of student applications for Programs A&B 2019-1 (Autumn 2019) has started. If you are interested in participating in one of these programs, please review the information on the website (https://usco.umap.org) about the programs’ contents, length, available credits, language requirement and fees before applying.
The application deadline for UMAP Coordinators at your home institution is 1 December 2018; therefore, you need to submit your application according to the adapted schedule of your home institution.
For the acceptance of students’ applications, the following three steps must be completed:
REGISTRATION — Students should create an account on the UMAP Student Connection Online (USCO) System by registering their email address and password ( https://usco.umap.org/std/ ). For more information about the USCO System, students can check the Student User Manual through this link ( http://umap.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/UMAP-Student-Connection-Online-USCO-Manual-for-Students.pdf ).
APPLICATION — Students complete the Application Form in the USCO System for up to five preferred programs and click “Save and Submit”. The USCO System will automatically inform the UMAP coordinators at the home university/institution that an application has been submitted. Applications will be accepted from October 20 through December 1.
NOMINATION — Coordinators log into the USCO System and check the applications they have received, and nominate up to two students by clicking “Approve as Program A”. Institutions with additional quotas for outbound students are able to nominate additional students according to the number of quotas they have available. Any additional students you want to nominate can be approved for Program B. Please note: Students in Program B may be required by their host institutions to pay tuition fees.
We look forward to receiving additional applications.
