Study and Work Abroad Study and Work Abroad


At the Study Abroad Office we facilitate global mobility for the UEA. Our dedicated team manages exciting study abroad programmes for both incoming and outgoing students through more than 160 international 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.

What better way to learn more about what it's like to study abroad with UEA than to read first-hand accounts from the students living it right now? Our blog, UEA on the Road, is written (and photographed) by our Study Abroad students about their experiences overseas. Take a look and get inspired!



Alumni of UEA study abroad (summer, semester and year-long) programmes who are overseas fees applicants 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.


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.
