Department of
Architecture and Built Environment

The University of Nottingham is a truly international university with campuses in Nottingham, Malaysia and China. The Faculty of Engineering seeks to emulate this philosophy by offering our students the opportunity to participate in exchange programmes all over the world. The faculty is constantly working to ensure our graduates gain an advantage when they go into the job market; we see study abroad as another way to make our graduates stand out from the crowd.

Study abroad


Studying abroad provides students with the unique opportunity to:

  • See your academic subject from a different perspective in a new academic environment
  • Acquire invaluable life skills
  • Meet a wide variety of people and make an international network of friends
  • Discover new strengths and abilities, conquer new challenges and solve new problems
  • Gain global awareness to prepare yourself for a career abroad

The Department of Architecture and Built Environment participates in the following exchange schemes:

These cover institutions from America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and The University of Nottingham Ningbo Campus in China. Your choice of exchange partner will depend on your department and the course you are registered on. Eligibility for exchange schemes will depend upon meeting academic criteria.

Please refer to the Departmental Study Abroad Factsheet and the International Office Website for more information.


The University is committed to offering reduced tuition fees and scholarships, including the Vice Chancellor's Award for International Travel, for students participating in study abroad programmes. We advise to check the Financial Study Abroad Factsheet and the International Office Website for up to date information on study abroad fees and awards in 2015/16.
