Study outside Europe

The world is your oyster when you study internationally

  • Spread your wings and study abroad at one of our international partners for a semester or a full academic year
  • Broaden your horizons by living and learning in North America, South America, Asia or Australia.
  • Work with your programme leader to match your UEL modules to a similar programme abroad.
  • Pay no extra tuition fees, and receive student finance as usual.
  • No need to know a different language – but you could pick it up while you’re out there! Some of our partners have beginners language classes.

Study outside Europe, from the USA to Korea (via Brazil)

How does it work?

The International Exchange Timeline
  1. Research your international options. Look at which institutions appeal to you, and find the ones which have modules that match your options at UEL.
  2. Speak with your Programme Leader: check that the modules you like will fit into your UEL programme, and find out how going abroad will affect your degree programme.
  3. Fill out the Study Abroad application form (see below).
  4. If successful, you will be notified and nominated to your host university, at which point you will be invited to select modules.
  5. You will then fill out a Learning Agreement to confirm your modules and have them approved by your tutors at UEL.
  6. Have a great time abroad.


Applications to study abroad in the first term or the full year of the following academic year close on 28 March.

Applications to study abroad in the second term of the current academic year close on 30 October.

Ensure that your programme leader signs off on your chosen modules in your learning agreement form which you can download, before submitting it to
