The University of Exeter has exchange links with institutions in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Singapore, China, Thailand, Peru and Hong Kong. In many cases the choice of where you can go will depend on what you are studying at Exeter.
Places at each institution are limited and there may not be places available at all partner universities every year. Places are therefore allocated on a competitive basis, your academic achievements being the key deciding criterion. You will be asked to select a number of institutions from those available for your degree programme. It is important to be aware that we cannot guarantee you a place at your preferred international partner institution, but we will make every effort to place you at one of your choices.
Some degree schemes at Exeter are available ‘with North American Study’, ‘with Study in New Zealand’, ‘with Australian Study’ or with 'International Study/Study Abroad'. If you are on one of these programmes you will spend one year abroad as part of a three or four year programme. Other degree schemes may have an optional study abroad programmes. Agreements with institutions may prioritise certain disciplines but it may be possible for students from other disciplines to participate in the exchange if there are spare places.
What you can study will depend on the criteria laid down by your discipline. They will specify the number of credits and the composition of your study programme (for instance you may be encouraged to take a percentage of classes outside your normal subject). Please check with your Study Abroad co-ordinator for exact details, a list of co-ordinators can be found in the Study Abroad Co-ordinators section.
