When you're a student at the University, you could study or work abroad, or both, as part of your degree, depending on your course. There are countless positive reasons to consider studying or working abroad – it can broaden your horizons, open up new professional and personal opportunities, and help you learn another language.

And when it comes time to start your career, this experience can also help you stand out from the crowd. If you have any questions, take a look at our FAQs about studying abroad page.

Opportunities and destinations

There are two types of exchange opportunities, depending on the destination:

Erasmus+

The Erasmus+ programme, funded by the European Commission, allows you to complete a study or work placement overseas. Taking part in the programme helps you to develop personally and professionally by gaining valuable international experience, broadening your horizons, experiencing new cultures and discovering new ways of working.

You can choose a period of 2–12 months, depending on your course and the agreements your school or department has with partner universities. As the opportunities are subject specific, you’ll need to discuss which options are open to you with your School or Department Exchanges Coordinator.

If you're about to graduate, you could participate in the Erasmus+ programme as a Graduate Trainee. Talk to your School or Department Exchanges Coordinator for details before your graduation. 

International Exchange

The University also has many agreements in place with partner institutions in places such as Australia, Brazil, Japan and the United States. You’ll find both types of opportunities in the table below, which is arranged by School and Department, and by country, but please note that these are subject to change.
