Outgoing Leicester students

EU referendum result: Incoming or outgoing students currently studying (or about to study in 2018-19) under the Erasmus+ programme are not affected by the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. Your immigration status will not change and you will continue to be eligible to receive Erasmus grant funding until at least as long as the UK remains a member of the EU. For the latest information, please visit: www.le.ac.uk/brexit

outgoing deviceWe're delighted that you're considering a year (or semester) abroad as part of your University of Leicester undergraduate degree.

Within the International Office we will often refer to exchanges under two different categories, Study Abroad or Erasmus+.

Study Abroad programmes are generally used for exchange destinations outside of Europe, but also includes non-EU countries and Erasmus+ funding destinations such as South Africa and New Zealand.

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

Study Abroad and Erasmus is supported by the Mobility Team and we work together to help you make the most of your time abroad. We hope that these webpages will provide adequate information on the application process and guidance for possible destinations. If you have any questions after viewing this information please contact us.

What Next?

After deciding between the Erasmus or Study Abroad exchanges, please view the 'Departments & Contacts' webpage to find out who to contact within your individual department. Departmental Coordinators 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 China, South Korea, Taiwan, or Japan. They are also an opportunity for students to study abroad if their academic department has chosen not to participate in the semester or year long exchanges. Students are invited to apply for a scholarship to support the cost of the programme.
