Study Abroad

Those who have chosen to study abroad often say that it was the highlight of their time as a student. We offer our undergraduate students (excluding BA Social Work) the opportunity to study abroad as a part of the University's study abroad programmes.

This can be an exciting and rewarding once in a lifetime opportunity to experience new cultures and make new friends whilst studying towards your degree.

We currently offer two schemes that are normally undertaken during the autumn semester of your final year. You will study suitable modules at the host institution and begin work on your dissertation. Our factsheets have full details of the institutions we partner with.

University-wide exchange programme

The University-wide exchange programme offers you the opportunity to study at one of our partner institutions, including universities in:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • China
  • Ireland
  • the Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • South Africa
  • Sweden
  • the USA

Erasmus programme

The Erasmus programme is a European-wide initiative based on subject-specific exchange agreements between schools/departments at Nottingham and academic counterparts at partner universities across Europe.

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

  • Konstanz University, Germany

I would recommend it to anyone. It gives you a great opportunity to experience a different culture and make friends from across the world!
