​Work or study abroad​

Loughborough University actively encourages students to gain an international experience.

Students can do this through a study exchange or through a work placement outside of the UK. In both cases the opportunity to gain insight into another culture, broaden experience and develop both intellectual and personal maturity, is invaluable.

Study exchanges

European or international partner universities. Students might spend one semester at their study exchange location or a full academic year, depending on what their degree course at Loughborough can accommodate. The majority of our partner universities offer modules taught in English, so language skills need not be a barrier to going on a study exchange.

Work abroad

Loughborough University encourages students to consider a work placement outside of the UK, whether in a European or international location. Students might spend one semester or a full academic year on work placement, depending on what their degree course at Loughborough can accommodate.

Erasmus+

Loughborough University currently participates in the Erasmus+ programme, which enables students on a European study exchange or work placement to apply for an Erasmus+ mobility grant.  Please note that the United Kingdom’s future participation in the Erasmus+ programme is contingent on Brexit negotiations. For the most up to date information on this, please visit the Erasmus+ website.
