Study and Work Abroad Study and Work Abroad

The University of East Anglia provides an exciting study abroad programme for both incoming and outgoing students through more than 160 student mobility partnerships. 

Incoming visiting students attend the University for one or two semesters, with academic credit transferable to the home institution.

Programmes are available through: Inter-university exchange (including Erasmus+); Independent enrolment; Science Without Borders; Special programmes: Dickinson College, IFSA Butler; Study Abroad With English; a summer semester as part of our International Summer School; and bespoke Short International Programmes organised for groups from partner institutions.

The University sends outgoing students on study and work placements of either one or two semesters. Opportunities abroad enhance your academic experience and increase employability significantly.

Alumni of UEA study abroad (summer, semester and year-long) programmes are encouraged to apply for one of our £1,000.00 scholarships for further degree study at UEA! Terms and Conditions and the Application Form can be found online.


On Thursday 3rd November 2016 we warmly invite you to celebrate Thanksgiving at UEA. Bring a dish of your favourite accompaniment or pudding, as turkey and soft drinks will be provided. The festivities will be taking place in the ARTS hub from 6.15pm and 9pm. To attend you must register for a free ticket, which can be obtained from the UEA Store.



It was great to have so many partners join us on campus pre-EAIE 2015, and thanks to your great feedback we're planning a second Partner Day event for 2016 before EAIE in Liverpool.

Look out for the latest edition of our Partner Newsletter, to help you keep in touch with Study Abroad @ UEA.

UEA is proud to be a commitment partner of the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad programme. This initiative seeks to mobilise resources and commitments with the goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade. UEA has pledged it’s support through continuous collaboration with valued U.S. university partners and by finding new ways to extend study abroad opportunities and resources to American students.

Alumni of UEA Study Abroad (summer, semester and year-long) programmes from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) are encouraged to apply for one of our £1,000.00 scholarships for further degree study at UEA!  Details and application form can be found here.
