Canterbury Christ Church University Year Abroad

As a current undergraduate student, you have the opportunity to study abroad to gain experience studying at a partner institution in Europe.

The Erasmus+ student mobility programme enables you to study or a work in Europe as part of your degree and students receive an EU grant of between €280 – €330 per month. Students who go on an exchange for a full year will have reduced tuition fees of only £1,385.

Note: If you’re interested in taking part, an expression of interest must be sent to the International Office by 15 January 2017 .

If you choose to study during your exchange you are able to stay from 3 to 12 months, alternatively if you choose to work, you are able to remain on the programme for 2 to 12 months.

To study abroad as an exchange student you must:

  • Be registered at the university as an undergraduate student;
  • Have successfully completed your first year of undergraduate study;
  • Have sufficient linguistic ability to be able to benefit from a study period abroad in case teaching is not in English;
  • Be nominated by your school to take part in the scheme – view the list of academic coordinators;
  • Erasmus+ study placements are not available to students in the final year of their programme, unless they apply for the traineeship mobility after completion of their studies at CCCU;
  • Placements are only available for combined honours students where both departments are satisfied that an appropriate curriculum is on offer.

You can go to any European university that has a bilateral agreement with CCCU. Partner institutions vary from one subject area to another and may change during the year.

To apply for the Erasmus+ exchange programme contact the International Office for more details by emailing  erasmus@canterbury.ac.uk or get in touch with the relevant Erasmus+ Coordinator in your School.
