Those who have chosen to study abroad often say that it was the highlight of their time as a student.
The School of Economics offers a variety of options for studying abroad, depending on the course you are taking.
Students taking Economics with French, German or Hispanic Studies spend their third year abroad. Students on our other economics degrees can apply to spend one semester of second year studying abroad.
University-wide exchange programme
The university-wide exchange programme offers you the opportunity to study at one of our partner institutions:
- Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
- The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (UBC)
- Concordia University, Montreal, Canada
- Nihon University, near Tokyo, Japan
Students on the BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics or BA Economics and Philosophy can study at UBC, but the philosophy element is not available at the other institutions. A level or equivalent in mathematics is required to study at Monash University.
Inter-campus exchange programme
You can apply to study at one of our overseas campuses for one semester in your second year, dependant upon the economics stream you are following.
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.
The year abroad that I spent studying in Toulouse was the best year of my life and I quickly immersed myself in French life such as new friends, night market concerts and travelling across the country on €1 buses. Nottingham also gives students the choice to spend the year working in France.
Study abroad opportunities are dependent upon satisfactory performance and subject to availability. For the latest information, visit our study abroad pages.
