Study Abroad

The University of Nottingham has one of the biggest and most diverse study abroad programmes in the UK and 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. Our factsheets have full details of the institutions we partner with.

Students taking Economics with French, German, Hispanic Studies or Russian will 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:

  • The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada (UBC)
  • Concordia University, Montreal, Canada
  • Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
  • Nihon University, near Tokyo, Japan

Students on the BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics or BA Economics and Philosophy can study at UBC and Monash, but the philosophy element is not available at the other institutions.

Inter-campus exchange programme

You can apply to study at one of our overseas campuses for one semester in your second year.

Students taking the econometrics stream in year two can apply to study abroad in China and students taking the quantitative economics stream in year two can apply to study abroad in Malaysia.

Study abroad was amazing; an opportunity that I would recommend everyone apply for! The course out there is very similar and there are always people who you can speak to if you need help.

Living in Sydney was amazing and there was so much to do, whether it was whale watching, climbing a pirate ship on the harbour, visiting the zoo to see kangaroos and koalas, watching an AFL game or taking a ferry to Manly Beach. Study abroad is about having new experiences and just enjoying yourself.
