Study Abroad

The University of Nottingham has a diverse study abroad programme and those who have chosen to study abroad often say that it was the highlight of their time as a student.

Currently, students in the School of Geography can study abroad for a semester of the second year.

You will receive guidance on how to apply for study abroad during your first year.

Erasmus programme

The school has exchange agreements in place with the following institutions which teach in English:

  • Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, Germany
  • Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble 1, France

I spent three months at Oregon State University. As well as exploring Oregon, I've been to Seattle, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Niagara Falls and Toronto.

There's still university work, but you get the chance to try things you'd never try otherwise. I can't recommend studying abroad enough, you get to experience the world and massively grow as a person - so many people have told me I'm way more confident since coming back!

The University of Nottingham will continue to participate in the Erasmus+ programme until its conclusion in 2022. We are working together with our partner institutions in Europe, so that incoming students can still be accommodated beyond 2022. There may be some changes to the range of placements available. Information on funding will be communicated soon.

The Turing scheme is the UK government’s global programme, providing funding for international opportunities in education and training. Details on eligibility and available funding will be published when available. If you have any questions, please get in touch.


Study abroad opportunities are dependent upon satisfactory performance and subject to availability. Options may change due to curriculum developments and institutional partnership renewals. For the latest information, visit our study abroad pages.
