Entry requirements

Academic requirements

All Erasmus applicants must be current students at an overseas university or college of higher education, and must have completed at least one year of study at their home university. The minimum academic requirement is a GPA of at least 3.0 (or equivalent).

Choosing modules at Nottingham

You must take the majority of your modules (at least 40 credits per semester) from your host School at The University of Nottingham – this is the academic School listed on the Erasmus agreement between The University of Nottingham and your home university. For further information on this please speak to staff at your home university.

If your host School is a department in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area studies, you must take a minimum of 20 credits per semester from this School, but you can take the remainder of your modules from one other School/Department.

To select modules, please view our online module catalogue. All applicants should consult the module guidance and FAQ list and the School module information.

English language requirements

All students are required to meet the University’s minimum English language requirements by taking either an IELTS, TOEFL IBT or Pearson Academic PTE test (see our English language requirements page for more information) unless they are a native of an English-speaking country. Some universities in non-English-speaking countries teach and examine in the medium of English language, and in certain cases there may be a possibility to waive the requirement to take an English test.
