Please be aware that study abroad options may change at any time for a number of reasons, including curriculum developments, changes to arrangements with partner universities, travel restrictions or other circumstances outside of the University’s control. Every effort will be made to update this information as quickly as possible should a change occur. Please note that, in order to be accepted on to a study abroad programme, you have to achieve the relevant academic requirements as set by the University of Nottingham AND meet the selection criteria of both the University of Nottingham and the partner institution (though the partner institution is under no obligation to accept you).
Where can I study or work abroad?
We have a wide range partner universities, for information on which partner universities and/or work placements are available for your school/department and the name of your academic adviser please see Global opportunities by school.
Please visit Global opportunities by school to find our if your degree programme offers study abroad opportunities. Your home school/department will be able to confirm the minimum academic requirements in order to be eligible to apply for the programme.
For information on studying at Lunds Universitet, Universiteit van Amsterdam or University College Dublin through International Exchange please refer to the International Exchange webpage. Students require a minimum overall academic average of 60% in order to be eligible to apply for International Exchange. Please refer to your academic school/department for the minimum academic requirements for school-based exchanges.
A number of academic schools/departments at the University of Nottingham have student exchange agreements with partner universities. Students from the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures have the opportunity to study or work in Europe during their third year abroad.
Each academic school/department which offers study abroad opportunities has a member of academic staff who is responsible for the exchange agreement with the partner university, acts as the academic adviser, agrees your academic study while abroad and provides advice and support prior to, during and after your study/work abroad experience.
You will need to liaise with your academic adviser to find suitable modules at your host university before you apply. In some schools/departments, the credits gained while studying abroad will count towards your Nottingham degree. To find out the name of your academic adviser please visit Global opportunities by school.
Work placements are only available for a minority of schools/departments. If you are undertaking a work placement, you will need to arrange this yourself, but it must be approved by your school/department in advance. You may also need to complete a work-based project. Your academic adviser/Year Abroad team will be able to confirm the requirements.
Studying abroad in Europe is not just for language students. Increasingly our partner universities are able to offer courses in English, as well as the host language. For a growing number of countries including the Netherlands, Italy, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden, you don't need to speak another language fluently and you will be able to study in English. Check with your academic adviser to find out what level of language you will need to study abroad in Europe.
How to apply
