Study Abroad Programmes
The University offers two Study Abroad programmes to its students:
- ERASMUS European programmes are subject specific links which we have with around 50 partner European universities and are for 1 semester as part of a 3 year undergraduate degree programme, or for a Third Year abroad as part of a 4 year programme. Students continue to pay tuition fees to the University of Worcester in the normal way. You would need to consider the cost of subsistence abroad (including accommodation) and travel to and from the host university (including travel insurance). Students studying abroad as part of their course may apply for student finance from Student Finance England (SFE). There is an Erasmus grant available to contribute towards costs which is approximately 300 to 450 euros per month and you may also wish to apply to SFE for a Travel Grant.
- INTERNATIONAL non-European exchanges cover most subjects and offer study abroad opportunities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA, Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. These are usually for 1 semester as part of a 3 year undergraduate degree programme, or for a Third Year abroad as part of a 4 year programme. Tuition fees continue to be paid to the University of Worcester in the normal way. You would need to think about the cost of subsistence abroad (including accommodation), a visa, travel to and from the host University (including travel insurance) and healthcare insurance. Students studying abroad as part of their course may apply for student finance and a Travel Grant from Student Finance England
If your course allows it, you can take your placement abroad, either with one of our partner universities or with a company/institution of your choice. If your placement takes place in a EU country and lasts at least 2 months, you may be eligible to receive an Erasmus grant, which is approximately 370 to 520 euros per month.
If you are interested in taking a traineeship or placement abroad please liaise with your PAT and your School’s International Course Lead to understand which option are open for your degree.
