Erasmus European Exchanges

A collage of images from students Erasmus Exchange

An Erasmus European exchange is an exciting opportunity for you to travel, to broaden your horizons, and to gain an insight into a different way of life. An exchange, consisting of either academic study or an international work placement, not only enhances personal and academic development, but can also improve your employment prospects, both in the UK and overseas.

Erasmus is open to everyone who is studying full or part-time towards a degree - it's not just for language students. If you are worried about not understanding the language - take a look at our University-Wide Language Programme (UWLP) which is available as part of several undergraduate courses, and are worth 20 credits each. You can find a full list of eligible programmes here. You can also choose to take a UWLP course as a not-for-credit paid option - as extra-curricular learning or simply for personal interest to help prepare for an Erasmus placement.

Many courses at the University of Salford, currently offer you the opportunity to complete part of your programme of study at one of our European partner institution (many of which deliver academic programmes in English).

So if you are currently studying at the University of Salford, or are in the process of applying, and if you have a pro-active attitude, show initiative and can work independently, why not find out more about opportunities for Outgoing Exchange Students. Your placement must be for a minimum of 3 months (minimum 13 weeks) to a maximum of 12 months.
