Outgoing Leicester students

EU referendum result: Incoming or outgoing students currently studying (or about to study in 2018-19 or 2019-20) under the Erasmus+ programme are not affected by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. For the latest information, 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.

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 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 or Europe. 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.
