Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

Durham University has over 240 student exchange agreements under the Erasmus+ and International Exchange programmes. Our partner institutions are spread across the globe from Austria to New Zealand!

Almost 300 Durham students every year take the opportunity to spend a period abroad and we welcome over 370 students to Durham from our partner institutions each year. You can find out more about life at Durham by visiting our pages dedicated to Incoming Students or Outgoing Students and read our Durham Students Abroad blog to find out what life is like studying abroad as a Durham student.

Study Abroad Briefing Sessions

Over the next few weeks the International Office will be running information sessions for students who are thinking about taking a year abroad. The following information will be covered:

  • The opportunities available to Durham students, both work and study placements.
  • Do I need a foreign language to study abroad? (Short answer = no!)
  • The application process – forms and deadlines.
  • Why study abroad? The benefits of an international exchange.

You will also be able to ask any questions you may have. Each session will cover the same topics, so you only need to attend one of them. We welcome students from all departments!

Details of the sessions are listed below. Please use the links below to book onto your session of choice.

You can also download our Study Abroad Guide to find out more about the opportunities available.
