Exchange, Study Abroad and Volunteering

The University 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.

ERASMUS+ and Worldwide Exchanges 

The Erasmus+ Scheme supports Leeds Arts University students to spend part of their second undergraduate year abroad, either in continental Europe under the Erasmus+ scheme or further afield with one of our worldwide exchange partners.

Financial support is available to help towards the costs of mobility and we can assist with foreign language preparation where necessary. There are grants available which are intended as a contribution towards the costs of studying abroad.   

We also have funding to support staff members to undertake a short mobility period in Europe. Mobilities can be for teaching or training purposes. 

If you think you might be interested in a study abroad placement or a staff mobility please contact
