Exchange opportunities for 2024/25

Please note: 

  • Information in these guides 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. 

Important notice

Not all institutions will be suitable for each degree programme. It is the student’s responsibility to identify an appropriate programme of study at a potential exchange destination and ensure that appropriate courses are available.
