Outgoing Students

We offer exciting opportunities for our students who wish to spend a period of time studying abroad.

Make the most of your time at Abertay by taking advantage of the opportunity to study or work abroad. You’ll gain invaluable experience to help give you an edge when applying for jobs. There are a range of options, including semester/academic year long studies abroad, work placements, and summer schools. Exchanges are open to students in year 2 or 3, though certain subjects may have the option in year 4.

Erasmus vs. Study Abroad/Exchange

Erasmus is a student exchange programme funded by the European Commission. Since the programme began in 1987, over 3 million students from 33 countries have participated in Erasmus. Although the UK has now left the EU, Abertay has Erasmus+ funding available for students for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years.

As an Abertay student, you can study at one of Abertay's Erasmus partner universities for a year or semester. You’ll experience life in another European country, meet students from all over the world, and pick up some language skills.

At Abertay, we also have exchanges set up with our partner universities outside of the Erasmus programme, with current opportunities for students in the USA, Canada and Hong Kong.
