Studying overseas gives you the opportunity to make new friends, experience another culture and discover new ways of looking at your subject.

Erasmus

Erasmus is the European Commission's exchange programme that enables students to spend either one semester or one full academic year studying or working in another European country.  The time you spend on your Erasmus study or work placement will count as part your degree.  Students normally receive an Erasmus top-up grant to help with the additional costs of moving to another country.
