How do I apply?

Who can apply?

Exchanges are open to most full time undergraduate students during the second year of a three-year course, or the third year of a four-year course. Visiting and incoming exchange students are not eligible to apply.

You have the option to go for one semester or for a full year, depending on your course of study. Some courses may also offer the opportunity to combine work and study abroad.

Erasmus+ exchange is also available to some postgraduate students, depending on course of study.

You can search for available opportunities by School / Course by using our search engine.

Please contact your Course Leader or School exchange coordinator if you have any questions about the options available to you.
