The BU Study Exchange Programme is a fantastic opportunity to experience a new country and culture during your BU degree.
Applications are now open for undergraduate students to study abroad next academic year. Usually, study exchange opportunities are completed during your second year of study, however, if you are interested in studying abroad during your placement year, final year or during your Masters, arrangements can be made on a case-by-case basis. Speak to your Programme Leader or Global Engagement Lead or Study Abroad Academic Coordinator to discuss your options.
Submit your application before the deadline on 15 February 2024 to study abroad for a semester at one of our selected partner universities during the 2024/25 academic year.
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 2024 for study exchange opportunities taking place in semester one or two of the 2024/2025 academic year.
