Opportunities for home/EU students

The University of Nottingham is a global university and is committed to providing students with a global education. Our students have the option to study at our overseas campuses, partner universities, as well as short-term study placements abroad.

Why study abroad?

  • Living and studying in another country for an extended period is a rare and potentially life changing experience
  • Promotion of personal growth and intellectual development
  • Enhanced employability. Employers are increasingly recognising the skills that come from studying abroad including flexibility, resilience, cross-cultural communication skills, the ability to adapt to new circumstances and deal constructively with differences
  • Building interpersonal skills

Our study abroad options

Study abroad programmes

Undergraduate students in the School of Life Sciences have the opportunity to study abroad in the second year of their studies.

This can be for either a full-year abroad or a single semester in one of our partner universities. Credits gained whilst studying abroad will count towards your Nottingham degree.

Our School Study Abroad Academic Adviser can provide you with advice and support on academic matters. Study Abroad Peer Advisers are students who have studied or worked abroad previously and can tell you what it’s like to study abroad from a student’s point of view.

To find out about all of the options available to you please visit the study abroad webpage.


ERASMUS programme

The Erasmus programme is a European-wide initiative based study exchange agreement between schools and departments at Nottingham and partner universities across Europe.

Erasmus+ Traineeships are available to Nottingham postgraduate research students who would like to spend a period of time doing practical project work at a European institution as part of an academic research collaboration.

To find out more please visit our Erasmus webpage.


Summer Schools

The University offers a range of summer schools for home, EU and international students who wish to study at our UK and Asia campuses.

Summer Schools are from one-to-six weeks and take place during the summer holiday. They cover a variety of subjects, not necessarily related to your undergraduate course. They can provide you with the chance to study something new, visit a country you haven’t been to before, explore a different culture and make new friends.

A Tropical Medicine Summer School at our Malaysia Campus is also under development.
