Students currently taking an undergraduate degree elsewhere are able to spend a year (or semester) of their studies at the University of Edinburgh on a Study Abroad Programme.
A year or semester in Edinburgh may count towards your final degree at your home university.
North American students in their final year of high school are also invited to apply as Freshmen to our Study Abroad programme.
You can study at Edinburgh for the full academic year or either the autumn (fall) or spring semester.
|Academic year||September - May||£ 12, 800|
|Semester one (fall)||September - December||£ 6, 650|

EU students can only apply to the University of Edinburgh if there is an appropriate Erasmus agreement in place.
You will need a good level of English. If you are a non-native speaker, you should meet the standard requirements for all international undergraduate students.

If you are unsure about the prerequisites, please contact us for advice.

We guarantee university accommodation for all international and all full-year Erasmus students.
