Optional student exchanges temporarily cancelled for Semester 1
Optional student exchanges scheduled to run in Semester 1 of 2020/21 have been temporarily cancelled for health and safety reasons.
Exchanges due to start in semester 2 are expected to go ahead.
The University is monitoring the situation closely and will update if this changes.
The University of Edinburgh offers students the opportunity to study in Europe and beyond via our Erasmus and International Exchange programmes.
We have around 300 student exchange partners in nearly 40 countries world-wide.
See all our exchange destinations for 2020-2021:
Our exchange opportunities are listed in two separate categories:
University-wide exchanges are open to most students in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CAHSS) and the College of Science and Engineering (CSE), and to students on some programmes in the Deanery of Biomedical Sciences.
Your degree subject may not necessarily be offered by all our university-wide partner institutions. You must check before you apply that suitable courses are offered by the institution(s) that you plan to apply to.
Subject-Specific exchanges are only open to students whose degree programme is in the stated Subject Area, so where you can go depends on your degree programme at Edinburgh. These exchanges have been set up by individual Schools and Subject Areas so should offer appropriate courses to satisfy your degree programme requirements.
