The University provides study abroad opportunities for both incoming and outgoing students.
We have exchange agreements with universities in countries as diverse as the USA, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Chile and many countries across Europe through the Erasmus programme.
Incoming study abroad students may attend UEA either as part of an inter-university exchange or as visiting students for a semester or an academic year. We welcome well over 300 students from all over the world each year to study for a semester or year within their undergraduate degrees, with academic credit able to be transferred to the home institution. If you are coming to UEA from Europe, please go to the Erasmus Programme section.
UEA degree-seeking students from many Schools of study have the opportunity to spend a semester or year abroad at one of our trusted partner institutions. If you are intending to go on a placement in a European country, please go to the Erasmus Programme section.

We are currently planning our second International Summer School for 2013, offering current university students the opportunity to spend 4 weeks in England undertaking an intensive academic programme.
