There are two types of study abroad programme available. The first being in Europe, with one of 190 partner universities through the Erasmus exchange programme. The second type being outside Europe through our exchange partnerships with some of the world's most prestigious universities
Your placement will last between three months (one semester) and one academic year. Depending on your degree, your study abroad may be a fully recognised period of study, which means you won't need to extend your degree.
For some courses (eg those featuring a language), a year abroad may be compulsory, so your degree will be four years.
You also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in Europe instead of a study placement through the Erasmus programme.
