Post-Brexit the UK is not part of the Erasmus+ funding framework. Most of Durham's partners in Europe are in the Erasmus+ framework and may use paperwork which includes Erasmus+ logos or wording, however, this does not mean that Durham students going to Europe are Erasmus+ students and does not make them eligible for Erasmus+ funding.
While numerous partners teach in English, many European partners have language requirements. Speaking a foreign language will expand the number of partners at which you will be able to study. Click the link below to find out more about partner language requirements, learning a language and support.
We have a number of institution-wide agreements with European universities. These allow students to study most subjects. Please click on the banner to see the list of institution wide agreements.
The majority of exchange agreements are at a departmental level. Please click on your relevant Department to find the agreements available to you.
Combined and Joint Honours students are able to choose from agreements within their subject area/s. Students are required to seek approval from all departments including the Combined Honours exchange coordinators.
Your Departmental Exchange Coordinator can provide further information and assitance about options available through your department.
Please be aware that if an institution is neither linked with your Durham department nor is not one of the institution-wide agreements, then you are not able to undertake a GO placement there. Not all partnerships are available for all levels of study. Some institutions have agreements with Durham departments for PG study only.
A number of our European Exchange partners allow for exchange at PGR level. It may be possible to undertake a research exchange at an institution not linked to your Durham department. You should use the links above to identify institutions that offer PGR exchange.
Given all the partnerships that are available it's important to keep an open mind. Here is a quick guide on some of the things you might want to think about.
