DESTINATIONS

Different types of study abroad programme offer different destinations.

Use the map to explore each partner institution.

Please note that school destinations are added when you choose a faculty.

We have over 60 university-wide exchanges, including with many of the world’s top-ranking institutions. Destinations include the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, East and South-east Asia, Europe, South Africa and Latin America.

Students from all schools allowing study abroad can apply for a place at a university-wide exchange partner. Most of these universities teach across a wide range of subject areas, but some will have limitations and won’t offer programmes that match all Leeds degrees. Some are specialist institutions, such as Georgia Institute of Technology. Research the universities before you apply to make sure they teach subjects related to your degree.

Current students must check Minerva for destination-specific information and advice, including any language requirements, academic restrictions and student feedback.

Some destinations are extremely popular, and we advise against choosing all of our most popular exchanges. Discuss your selections with a member of the Study Abroad staff before you complete your application form.

Each teaching school at the University of Leeds has its own departmental exchanges that are open only to students studying in that school (both single and joint honours). These universities have been chosen as exchange partners because they are particularly strong in the relevant academic area.

Most school exchanges are in Europe and all European destinations are part of the Erasmus+ scheme. Funded by the European Commission, Erasmus+ is a European-wide exchange programme for university students, which currently provides a non-repayable grant to assist with the costs of studying abroad.

Current students must check Minerva for destination-specific information and advice, including any language requirements, academic restrictions and student feedback.

The Horizon year abroad focuses on developing linguistic and intercultural competencies. It’s still academically rigorous, but you’re not limited to taking modules in your degree subject.

The academic content of a Horizon study abroad year focuses on language learning and intercultural understanding. You’ll be required to complete a compulsory 20-credit Leeds module (on a distance-learning basis) on intercultural communication and global citizenship, as well as at least 20 credits of beginner or intermediate level language modules in a local language. You’ll select your remaining credit load from a selection of modules taught in English at the host university, which don’t have to be in your main degree subject.

Current students must check Minerva for destination-specific information and advice, including any language requirements, academic restrictions and student feedback.

You can only take a Horizon study year abroad at the universities listed on this page, not at any other partner universities.
