Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad


Erasmus+ at Durham

Durham University is a recognised institution in the Erasmus + programme and maintains links with over 200 partner universities across Europe. Under the programme Durham students can study in Europe as part of their degree. In return Durham receives students from our partner universities to study in Durham.

Students coming from one of our European Erasmus+ partners are eligible for an Erasmus+ exchange placement. Please check before submitting an application.

Our academic programmes run for the full academic year (October-June). It is sometimes possible to spend less than one year at Durham if your home university has made special arrangements with the Durham department. Unless you are taking a special project, students attend the same courses and take the same examinations as students studying a full degree at Durham.

Why study through Erasmus+ at Durham?

  • Study at a top rate university
  • Inspiring surroundings in an historic university town
  • Unique College system providing a strong sense of community - all students are members of a college
  • Opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports and other activities, both at University and college level
  • An excellent network of support and welfare services, including a dedicated Exchanges and Study Abroad Team, a personal College Tutor and the International Student Support Service

Durham University Exchanges & Study Abroad Team

The Exchanges and Study Abroad Team in the International Office maintains links with our partner universities, promotes exchange activities, provides advice to students on applying for different programmes and on funding opportunities, produces pre-departure/arrival information and provides support for Durham students whilst on exchange and for incoming students from our partner universities once they arrive in Durham.
