ERASMUS+ and International Exchange Programmes


The benefits of participating in an overseas exchange programme

We are now living in a globalised environment. Loughborough University embraces this concept and is dedicated to giving our students a high quality international educational experience so that our graduates are prepared for the global workplace. 

Why participate in a European/international exchange programme?

  • Get ahead in the job market – approach business issues from another cultural perspective and improve your CV.
  • A different and new outlook – study your subject in a different context.  You will find this challenging and highly rewarding.
  • Funding - most students participating in a European exchange will be eligible for an ERASMUS+ grant and will not have to pay tuition fees to their host university.
  • An international network of friends – many of the people you meet will remain your friends for the rest of your life, at home and abroad.
  • International mobility – we now live in an internationally mobile world.  What better time to prepare for this than as a student?
  • Life skills – enhance your personal development, increase your employability, improve your confidence and enjoy your life in different ways.
  • Have the time of your life – studying at university is all about new experiences and making the most of the opportunities open to you.  Enjoy!
