Exchange programmes give students the opportunity to study for a semester or a year at a partner institution without extending or interrupting their degree programme. University partners agree to recognise each other’s credit so that you can continue to pay fees at your home institute while gaining credit for your study abroad. The University of Worcester has a number of established links with partners in Europe and worldwide. We can offer undergraduate and postgraduate exchange programmes. Our European Partnerships are part of the Erasmus Plus programme and use ECTS, the European Credit Transfer System, enabling European students to gain full credit transfer for their time in the UK. Our non-European partners also offer credit transfer.


Coming to Worcester

The University of Worcester welcomes international students from all around the world and we are very pleased that you are interested in an exchange semester or year at the University of Worcester.

Incoming Exchange students should first contact the International Exchange Coordinator at your current university and then download the ‘Incoming International Exchange Information Booklet’ and complete the Incoming ‘International Exchange Application Form’. Application deadline for Semester 1 is 30 April, and for Semester 2 is 31 October.

Outgoing Students 

A second language offers a tremendous advantage when competing for jobs – there’s no better way to attain fluency than complete immersion. Although you will probably take courses taught in English, our Language Centre can help you build up your conversational and general language skills prior to your exchange.

EILCs - Erasmus Intensive Language Courses

Students taking part in Erasmus European Exchange programmes may have the opportunity to study the language of the host country prior to their study period overseas. These are special language courses in the less widely used and less taught European Union languages. The advantages of these courses are tremendous and include 20 hours a week language training, special cultural components within the programme and no extra tuition fees.

See the European Commission website for more information or contact the Language Centre.

Incoming Students

Our Language Centre offers one to one drop-in EFL and English for Academic Purposes support and opportunities to take credit bearing English Language or Foreign Language modules. Visit the Language Centre for more information.
