Exchange opportunities for 2022/23

Exchange destinations

Check out our Exchange Destinations Guide below to see where you could go on exchange in 2022/23:

Please note:

  • Information in this guide is correct at the time of publishing, but may be subject to change. 
  • Our partners change from year to year and we cannot guarantee that exchanges with current partners will be offered in future years.
  • Studying abroad at an institution with which the University of Edinburgh does not have a formal exchange agreement is not permitted.
  • New exchange agreements cannot be created for individual students, and students are not permitted to create exchange agreements themselves.

Our exchange opportunities are listed in two separate categories:

University-wide exchanges

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

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.
