International and Exchange Students

Here you will find information for international and exchange students looking to study at the School of History, Classics and Archaeology.

International students

We welcome applications from international students. If English isn't your first language, you'll need to provide evidence of your language ability but the University can offer English language study alongside the chance to take academic modules if necessary.

The University's Study Abroad pages provide extensive information about:

  • insurance and finance
  • language requirements
  • accommodation
  • the support we offer

Exchange students

We also welcome applications from Erasmus, study-abroad and exchange students interested in studying a subject within the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. You should apply to our Study Abroad and Exchange programme through your home institution.

We offer a wide selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses to incoming Erasmus, study-abroad and exchange students. Advanced language modules in Classics are year-long courses, while most other modules are only for one semester.

Semester-long modules taught in the School are normally worth 20 credits (= 10 ECTS credits), although different options may be available. It's also possible to take one module outside of the school each semester.

Restrictions for undergraduate Erasmus students

For undergraduate degrees, several Stage 2 modules are capped to a maximum of five Erasmus students. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Erasmus students can only take Stage 3 modules with the agreement of the Head of Subject and of the Module Leader. This option must be discussed in person at the beginning of your exchange period.
