The Erasmus+ exchange programme allows international students currently studying at a European university (with which we have an Erasmus+ exchange agreement) to spend a year or a semester with us.
Study abroad and coronavirus
Some aspects of the 2020/21 study abroad/exchange programme will be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Erasmus+ exchanges are based around subject area agreements. This means that, for example, a History student from a partner European university could study History here at The University of Manchester. Please note that the universities with which The University of Manchester partners, and the programmes offered by them, may change from year to year.

Brexit information for prospective Erasmus+ students
The University of Manchester remains committed to working with its European and international partners. Erasmus+ students are very welcome on our campus and in our city.
We are liaising with all our existing Erasmus+ partners to seek to ensure that the necessary agreements are in place so that student mobility can continue uninterrupted regardless of the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. However, there may be some changes to the range of placements on offer.
Fees and funding
Erasmus+ students do not pay any fees and may receive an Erasmus+ grant from their home university.
