American and Canadian Studies

International school exchange

Eligibility

Four year single and joint honours degrees in American Study (International Study) require the completion of a period of study abroad, usually in North America.

American Studies (International Study) students spend third year of their four year programme abroad, normally in the United States or Canada. Joint Honours students may transfer into the International Study programme if places become available at the end of first year.

Places are awarded on an academically competitive basis.

Partner institutions reflect the diversity of North America in terms of both geography and educational approach and we ensure that all are able to maintain high academic standards. Please visit the Cultures, Languages and Area Studies webpage for further information and to view available partner universities:

Year abroad

Students taking joint honours BA International Media and Communications spend their third year abroad in the country of their chosen language of study. These placements are organised by the individual language departments. 

All four-year degree programmes include a third year abroad. The options for your year abroad currently include studying at a university or undertaking a work placement or working as a British Council language assistant.

The UK has left the EU and all changes to immigration rules have been implemented from 1st January 2021. The UK Government has made clear that it values international exchanges and collaboration in education and training, and we should remember that the Year Abroad provision for languages students in British universities began many years before the UK’s membership of the EU, as has the British Council Teaching assistantship. The Year Abroad will continue, and students at Nottingham will continue to have a range of options for their Year Abroad.  We have been working with all our  Erasmus+ University partners to discuss renewal of agreements and increase the number of study places for our students at our partner universities. As we finalise these we may see new partners joining us, whilst others are taking a new strategic route for exchanges.  Work placement opportunities may change too as we see a change in the working environment as a result of the Pandemic and Brexit, but we will work to provide alternative opportunities. If you plan to work in the EU, terms and conditions of employment may vary depending on the country the work placement is in.  The University has made a commitment to continue providing outgoing student mobility and exchange programmes through the Erasmus+ scheme (or an alternative to the Erasmus+ scheme) until the 2022-23 academic year.  We are proud to have one of the largest European student mobility programmes in the UK and we will protect this experience.

International summer schools

Summer schools are open to all undergraduate University of Nottingham students, and offer opportunities to take taught courses at one of our partner universities. 

Summer schools range between one and six weeks. As these programmes are offered during holiday periods, credits are not transferred back to Nottingham and in most cases you are free to study whatever is of interest to you.

There are a number of summer schools and short-term programmes available to students at the University of Nottingham based in various institutions worldwide. Available programmes vary from year to year, however we traditionally offer various programmes across East and Southeast Asia, Europe and North America.

Year abroad

All four year degree programmes include a third-year abroad.

The options for your year abroad currently include studying at a university or undertaking a work placement or working as a British Council language assistant.

The UK has left the EU and all changes to immigration rules have been implemented from 1st January 2021. The UK Government has made clear that it values international exchanges and collaboration in education and training, and we should remember that the Year Abroad provision for languages students in British universities began many years before the UK’s membership of the EU, as has the British Council Teaching assistantship. The Year Abroad will continue, and students at Nottingham will continue to have a range of options for their Year Abroad.  We have been working with all our  Erasmus+ University partners to discuss renewal of agreements and increase the number of study places for our students at our partner universities. As we finalise these we may see new partners joining us, whilst others are taking a new strategic route for exchanges.  Work placement opportunities may change too as we see a change in the working environment as a result of the Pandemic and Brexit, but we will work to provide alternative opportunities. If you plan to work in the EU, terms and conditions of employment may vary depending on the country the work placement is in.  The University has made a commitment to continue providing outgoing student mobility and exchange programmes through the Erasmus+ scheme (or an alternative to the Erasmus+ scheme) until the 2022-23 academic year.  We are proud to have one of the largest European student mobility programmes in the UK and we will protect this experience.
