School of Business and Economics


Where to study

If you want to study abroad for a year between your second and final years of study, you can choose from one of our 40+ partner universities around the world.

All partners teach modules in English and many provide an opportunity to learn or improve a language.

Key points to note

  • Exchange places are limited at all partner universities and some are extremely competitive.
  • The type of partner (Erasmus+, School-wide or University-wide) may change the application process and/or the funding available.
  • The UK’s future participation in the Erasmus+ programme after 2020-21 is contingent on Brexit negotiations, although we do expect these partnerships to continue. Please visit the Erasmus+ website for the latest information.

You can use the partners' websites below to find out more about studying there as an exchange student.
