Students can study abroad for part of their degree through several schemes.
The University's International Exchange Programme involves established partners at State Universities and private colleges in North America, and new programmes with Hong Kong and Japan. Students normally go abroad in their second year of study. The Credits gained are recognised by the University of Aberdeen and incorporated into the student's University of Aberdeen academic record.
If you are a citizen of the European Economic Area you can study in a university in another European country for a period through the EU funded SOCRATES/ERASMUS programme. Study placements can be between three and twelve months, and form an integral part of your degree programme. The University has SOCRATES links with about 180 universities in Europe.
"My year at the University of Washington in Seattle was an unforgettable experience that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The challenges and excitement of studying and living overseas, and the insights I gained, certainly helped me achieve my long term goal of working in marine research." Barbara Cheney (BSc Marine Biology)
