Studying abroad as part of your degree gives you the opportunity to see the world, discover a new culture, meet new people, pick up a new language and learn more about yourself. It can also make you more attractive to employers and improve performance in your studies.


Erasmus+ is a European Union-funded programme which encourages you to spend part of your higher education studies in another European country.

We participate in the Erasmus+ programme, providing grants for international study for students on:

  • Medicine MBBS and Medicine MBBS (graduate entry): during the final year elective period, you can apply for grants of approximately 380 to 430 Euros per month (depending on year and destination). The elective must take place in an eligible country and run for a minimum of eight weeks.

  • MSci in Biomedical Science: during one semester in your final year, you can apply for a grant of approximately 380 to 430 Euros per month (depending on year and destination) in order to conduct your final research project.

Currently, we have Erasmus+ agreements with the University of Barcelona, Radboud University Medical Centre and the University of Granada. These agreements allow MSci Biomedical Science students to conduct a research project in one of the research groups at these universities.

We are expanding our network of partnerships with European institutions to provide more opportunities for study abroad in the near future. If you have any links with a European university or institution that you would like us to explore study abroad opportunities with, please contact us.
