The University-wide exchange programme is a competitive programme that offers full time undergraduate students the opportunity to study at one of our 37 university-wide partner universities for one semester or one academic year, as part of their Nottingham degree programme. Some of our partner universities are part of the Universitas 21 consortium, an international network of leading research-intensive universities, of which The University of Nottingham is a founding member.
In order to be considered for the programme, applicants are required to have attained at least a 60% average at the time of application, to have a good academic reference and a good personal statement provided as part of the application process.

Where can I study abroad?
We have University-wide partner universities in the following countries:
Lund University in Sweden, the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands and University College Dublin university-wide partners, so if you are interested in studying here, you should apply to the University-wide programme. However accepted students will be eligible for funding (subject to availability) through the Erasmus programme.

For the vast majority of schools/departments, the credits gained whilst studying abroad through this programme will count towards your Nottingham degree.
Each school/department participating in the University-wide programme has a member of academic staff who acts as the school coordinator and is responsible for approving your academic study while abroad, and for providing advice and support on all academic matters.
