Study Abroad and Erasmus+

Would you like to spend part of your degree abroad, visiting exciting destinations and experiencing new cultures? At Chichester there are opportunities in many of our subject areas to spend time abroad whilst studying for your degree.

We offer students the opportunity to go on exchange either under the Erasmus Programme (we hold an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) to countries that are members of the European Union, or as an International Exchange Student to countries outside of the European Union.

Student View:

“My Erasmus exchange was the BEST thing I ever did, I went to Dans och Cirkushogskölan (the University of Dance and Circus) in Stockholm, Sweden from January-June. Not only did I get to live in another country for six months and experience a whole new culture, I also made loads of new friends from all around the world and can now visit them whenever I want! I gained so much invaluable knowledge for my studies and would do it all over again in an instant."
