Outgoing Leicester students

EU referendum result: For the latest information on the future of the Erasmus+ programme at UK universities please visit: www.le.ac.uk/brexit

veneciaWe're delighted that you're considering studying abroad as part of your University of Leicester undergraduate degree.


Your eligibility to study abroad is based on the specific UG degree programme you are undertaking - i.e. if you are taking a BA Management Studies or a BSc Economics or are taking a Major in History. Not every degree programme includes the option of studying abroad. If you are not sure if your specific degree programme includes the option of studying abroad, please email studyabroad@le.ac.uk or speak to your home department (for joint honours students, this is the first named subject department of your degree, if you are a Major/Minor student, this is the department where your Major is based).


There two different categories, Study Abroad or Erasmus+.

Study Abroad programmes are generally used for exchange destinations outside of Europe.

Erasmus exchanges are used for our Erasmus partner universities within the EU.

Study Abroad and Erasmus is supported by the Global Opportunities Team and we work together to help you make the most of your time abroad.

What Next?

After checking your eligibility and deciding between the Erasmus or Study Abroad exchanges, please contact your Departmental Coordinator to let them know you are interested. They will be able to answer questions on the academic provisions of destinations, and the length of exchange available for each degree programme.

Your academic department will nominate you in December of each year to the Study Abroad team. We will then allocate places in January/ February. If you are successful, and choose to accept your allocated place, we will then contact you to support you throughout the application process and to attend mandatory pre-departure sessions.

Study Abroad Summer Programmes

Summer Programmes offer the opportunity for students to participate in short language or cultural experience in East Asia, Europe or the Americas. They are also an opportunity for students to study abroad if their academic department has chosen not to participate in the semester or yearlong exchanges.
