Student Mobility Team, King’s Gate

We encourage our students to enrich their degree by taking advantage of the opportunity to study or work abroad. Through an international exchange programme you can experience different cultures, develop your skills and grow in confidence, make new friends and boost your CV. The Erasmus+ exchange programme allows you to study or work in another European country. Alternatively you could go further afield to study with one of our partners outside Europe.
