Study Abroad Programmes

Students' UnionStudy Abroad is available as different programmes: exchange or direct applicant.


Exchange students join us from universities that have a formal agreement with our University.  Students that join us from partner universities will be nominated by their home university before they submit their application.

Direct Applicant

If your university does not have an exchange partnership with the University of Leicester but they are happy for you to study with us for a semester or a full year you can apply as a direct applicant. Please see our latest tuition fees.

Other Programmes


Students from partner European universities join us as Erasmus+ exchange students. Please view the Erasmus section of the website if you are interested in this programme.


The 3+1+1 programme provides students from four Chinese partner universities with the opportunity to study at your home university for three years and to then complete your studies at the University of Leicester by taking our Study Abroad programme followed by a Masters Degree.
