If you are interested in undertaking part of your studies abroad then Erasmus may be of interest to you.

Erasmus is a scheme that enables higher education students in 31 European countries to study for part of their degree in another EU country.

The experience offers a unique opportunity to strengthen your foreign language skills, enhance your CV, experience new cultures and make new contacts and friends. You can read all about the experiences of students who have undertaken Erasmus study on the British Council Website.

Undergraduates need to be in the second year or above of their course to be eligible to apply for Erasmus. Postgraduates can also apply. If you are interested, please discuss options with your faculty co-ordinator once you have started your course.
