Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

For students looking to undertake an Erasmus+ placement, Universities UK have made the following statement available on their website:

"Following the UK-EU phase one agreement on the 15 December, the UK will be able to participate in Erasmus+ until the end of the programme in 2020. This should allow staff and students to complete mobility periods, and receive funding, through the Erasmus+ programme until the end of the academic year 2020/21.UUK continues to highlight the benefits of the programme and will be urging the UK government to push for access onto the Erasmus+ successor programme, which will commence in 2021"

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.
