Ways to study at NTU

Find out what study abroad and exchange options are available to you if you are interested in coming to NTU.

Will NTU offer study abroad and exchange programmes in autumn 2021?

Yes. We are processing applications as normal. However everyone must comply with the travel regulations in the UK and your home country. Please check the latest travel advice before making any plans.

When you're able to make travel plans, please visit our planning your journey web page for information on travel to Nottingham from UK airports.

Please note that your study abroad cannot go ahead without the approval of NTU and your home university.

If you have any questions, please check our international students FAQs or contact your NTU School Exchange Coordinator.

Your study options

We welcome over 500 visiting students from around the world every year for study abroad exchanges. You can join us for either a semester or for a whole year and you can choose from a range of modules across our 8 academic schools. We also offer a variety of language and cultural experiences to provide you with the most enriching experience possible.

We also have a Global Summer School which offers online courses where you can virtually meet students from around the world and learn from world-class academics.

You can find details of the different schemes available to you below.

Study abroad (fee paying)

NTU welcomes applications from students who want to spend a period of time studying in the UK, earning credits to transfer back to their home institution.

Fee-paying students are able to apply from any university. An agreement between NTU and your home university is not necessary.

Students can choose to study for one semester or the full academic year. Modules are available across most disciplines and are part of the regular undergraduate curriculum enabling study abroad students to study alongside UK-based home students.

Turing Scheme (Erasmus+)

The UK government has confirmed that the UK will not be part of the next Erasmus+ programme (2021 to 2027). The UK’s participation in Erasmus+ will be replaced by a new programme called the Turing Scheme. This begins in September 2021. We expect to receive further information about the Turing Scheme during January 2021. We'll share this information with you once it's officially confirmed.

This scheme does not provide funding to incoming students. Please check with your home university the availability of funding for your exchange programme in NTU.

ISEP

You can also apply to our study abroad programme for 1 or 2 semesters via the International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP) network. Please contact ISEP for more information on the options available to you.

Global Summer School (online)

You can also apply for our Global Summer School programme July. Our Online Global Summer School is an excellent way to explore a particular topic in more depth and at the same time experience the best of what NTU, Nottingham and the United Kingdom have to offer.

Postgraduate exchange (taught courses)

You can study with us on exchange as a postgraduate level taught student only if your home institutions has an exchange agreement with NTU in the relevant field of study.

Options are available in Nottingham Business School and School of Science and Technology.

Please contact the International or Study Abroad Office in your home institution for more details.

Study through my home university partnership with NTU

Many students study with us through a partnership arrangement between NTU and the home university.  You can see our list of exchange partners here.

Modules of study (classes)

At NTU the individual units you study are called modules. They may be called courses or classes in other universities.

Exchange students are normally required to take a full module load at NTU. They are usually 60 credits (30 ECTS) per semester or 120 credits (60 ECTS) over a full academic year. Many NTU modules are 20 credits each but can vary depending on your study subject. You will normally select modules from the second year of an undergraduate programme. Please note that you will not be able to mix modules across different Schools.

It is important for you to:

  • Consider your module choices carefully
  • Select alternative modules in case your first choices are not available
  • Liaise with your home university exchange coordinator to ensure your choices are appropriate for your subject and level of study.
  • Your home university coordinator must approve your module choices.

Our exchange and study abroad students are taught alongside home and international students taking full degree programmes.
