Research where you can go

A study abroad placement gives you the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities around the world for one semester or a full academic year as an exchange student.

To find out whether your course offers an exchange opportunity, speak to your exchange tutor, they will be able to recommend exchange partners, let you know when you can go on exchange and for how long. Most students go on exchange in their second year and sometimes the first semester of their third year, every course is different so speak to your exchange tutor to find out more.

To find out where you can go on exchange, view our exchange partners to see where you can study. You’ll notice some are restricted by subject and others are institution-wide so could be any undergraduate modules the partner university offers as long as the partner university and exchange tutor are happy with your choices.

When you apply to study abroad you can choose up to 3 exchange partners that you are interested in.

Not sure if you can afford to study abroad, look at funding and support, as we can offer living cost grants and help you apply for travel grants to support you while studying abroad.

To find out more about the exchange programme or to register your interest, just contact exchange@chi.ac.uk.

Please note, not all partner institutions teach in English, so you may need to provide evidence of their language level.

For support and advice please speak to your exchange tutor who can provide guidance on our exchange partners and how to complete your application form.
