Third year abroad

Students on combined honours programmes with a modern language are required to spend some or all of their third year abroad.

Students on other programmes are free to apply to go abroad for their third year either under the Erasmus scheme or on an approved international exchange.

For details of available exchanges and how to apply please consult the Edinburgh Global website:

International exchange programmes

For details of what you’ll need to do in English Literature during your year abroad, please consult the Third Year Abroad Handbook:

There are two pathways to follow for exchanges in third year: Erasmus and International Exchanges.
