Study exchange

Explore and apply for study exchanges at partner universities around the world.

When can I go?

You may be able to go for one semester, or for a full year that combines work and study abroad.

Exchanges are open to most full-time undergraduate students. They take place during the second year of a three-year course, or the third year of a four-year course.

Erasmus exchange is also available to some postgraduate students. It depends on the course of study.

Any questions about the options available to you? Contact your course leader or Academic School exchange coordinator.

Where can I go?


The Erasmus+ programme promoted student mobility to Europe for study and work. The programme includes over 250 partner institutions in 26 European countries. View the Erasmus charter.

In 2020, the government confirmed the UK will not be part of the 2021 to 2027 Erasmus+ programme.

We may continue to take part next year if there is surplus funding from our 2020/21 Erasmus+ grant. If there's money left over, you'll still be able to apply for  an Erasmus mobility grant. This will be subject to availability as well as the usual requirements and criteria. Please keep an eye on this page for updates.

If you are a student on Erasmus+ this academic year 2020/21, please note that your funding is not affected. You'll still get your Erasmus funding subject to the usual requirements and criteria.

While the UK is no longer part of Erasmus+, NTU will maintain our European partnerships. We'll still offer exchange opportunities for our students in Europe.

Turing Scheme

The new Turing Scheme begins in September 2021. This replaces the UK’s participation in Erasmus+. Find out more about Turing Scheme grant rates.

The British Council will be giving us more information about the Turing Scheme. This should be in February or March. We appreciate your patience in the meantime. Keep an eye on this page  – we'll update it when we know more. We'll also hold an information session for students.

We'll be holding information sessions and virtual drop-ins in spring 2021. Visit the Study Abroad channel on the  Virtual Global Lounge for announcements.

Apply now

Applications have closed for 2020/21 but will reopen in the new academic year.

Applications for 2021/22

  • Applications will be open from 15 April to 21 June 2021. Applications will be accepted during this window for Semester Two in spring 2022.
  • For NBS students only: please use the presentations on the Nottingham Business School NOW Learning Room as the main guides of places available, as what is available on Mobility Online will differ slightly. This is due to the fact that NBS has many partners and different study routes, so it is not possible for us to discount them from the portal. Students who do not engage with the NOW pages and apply for non-available partners could reduce their application options as a result.

Once you’ve applied, you can track the progress of your application online on Mobility Online.

Download the Mobility Online Student Guidance and watch a Tutorial Video on how to use your Mobility Online account.

If you have any issues with the online application system, email the support helpdesk.
