International students


Study Abroad Programme

The Study Abroad Programme is ideal for undergraduate students from outside the UK who want to spend a period of time studying in the UK, earning credits to transfer back to their home institution.

Fee-paying students are able to apply from any university. An agreement between The University of Nottingham and your home university is not necessary.

Modules are available across most disciplines and are part of the regular undergraduate curriculum enabling study abroad students to study alongside UK-based home students.
