Student exchanges at Surrey

Study abroad

As a University of Surrey student you have the opportunity to work or study abroad as part of your degree. 

Surrey international exchange

Students share their experiences of going on an international exchange to Hong Kong.

Research shows that studying or working abroad makes you smarter. There are study exchange opportunities in many subject areas, and the majority of students can choose to work abroad for their professional training year.

Study exchange can take place either in the second year for one semester or the full year or as an alternative to a work placement in the Professional Training Year, depending on your degree course. For further details consult Global Opportunities under your degree programme entry.  A guide to the Global Opportunities can be viewed here.

Taking part in an exchange gives you the opportunity to travel and live in another country, whilst earning credits that will contribute to your Surrey degree. The University of Surrey has Erasmus agreements across Europe, and international partners worldwide including USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Japan. Some of the exchange agreements are subject specific, please use the online search tool to find out where you can study abroad, before using the online application.
