Study Abroad and Exchange

Our exciting portfolio of study abroad and exchange programmes for both visiting and outgoing students includes more than 200 global partnerships.

Visiting study abroad students can study with us for one semester, a full year, or for a short course, such as a summer programme, with academic credit transferable to the home institution. Programmes are available through inter-university exchange and independent enrolment as a fee paying student, with customised short programmes also available for partner universities.  

If you're interested in studying abroad at UEA, book a call with our Visiting team to find out more. 

Many UEA students can participate in outgoing study or work placements across the globe for one semester, a full year or for a short course, such as a summer programme. Opportunities abroad enhance the academic experience, and studies show this experience increases employability prospects.
