Exchange, Study Abroad and Volunteering

The College encourages students to consider study and work abroad opportunities as a way of developing global perspectives and cross-cultural capabilities in their day to day lives and practice.


The Ersamus+ Scheme supports Leeds College of Art students to spend part of their second undergraduate year abroad in continental Europe with one of a range of College partner colleges and universities.  Financial support is available to help towards the costs of mobility and we can assist with foreign language preparation where necessary. Grants are not intended to cover the full costs of study abroad so participants must plan their budgets carefully. 

An Erasmus Staff Guide has been produced to help Course Teams support students in taking up Erasmus opportunities. We have Erasmus agreements with a range of institutions. Please see here for the full list of partnerships.
