Study or work abroad with Erasmus+

Information for outgoing Erasmus students

Studying or working in an international setting is a rewarding experience. It will help you put what you are learning on your programme into context within the wider world. The added bonus of living in another country is experiencing a new culture and language and developing new networks and memories for life.

The Erasmus+ programme enables you to undertake either a study or traineeship placement at a host organisation for a minimum of 2 months up to a maximum of 12 months.

Examples of placements:

  • Architecture students working on church restoration projects in Austria
  • Media student covering MTV awards in Malta
  • Law students undertaking research projects at the University of Malaga
  • Laboratory research project in Spain and Malta for bioscience students
