The BU Study Exchange Programme is a fantastic opportunity to experience a new country and culture during your BU degree. To study abroad for a semester at one of our selected partner universities during your second year of undergraduate study, submit an application before 15 February 2020.
If you wish to study abroad during your placement year, final year or at Masters level, arrangements are made on a case by case basis. Speak to your Programme Leader or Global Engagement Lead to discuss your options.
Opportunities at BU are available through:
- Erasmus+ exchanges – study at a partner university in Europe
- International exchanges – study at a partner university outside of Europe
As part of the application process you’ll need to tell us why this experience will benefit you and why you’d be a great ambassador for Bournemouth University. We will also need evidence of your current academic performance.
How to apply
Applications close at midnight on 15 February 2020 for study exchanges taking place in semester one or two of the 2020/2021 academic year.
