Study-abroad programmes

If you are a Politics and History student at Brunel and you wish to take a period of study abroad outside of the existing exchange programmes:

Universities around the world usually offer a study abroad programme for international students. You might be eligible for one of these programmes, and join it for your second year.

Please note: visiting students usually pay full fees, irrespective of their country of origin.

For further information, please contact the International Coordinator.

Courses and assessment

To ensure academic recognition is given by the home university wherever possible, Brunel uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). 2 Brunel credits = 1 ECTS credit).

Students whose home university has particular requirements restricting their programme of study abroad should ensure details are provided in their application form; we will endeavour to accommodate such requirements when informed about them in advance.

Erasmus students are expected to select a programme from the undergraduate modules on offer. In exceptional circumstances suitably qualified students may be considered for postgraduate modules if places are available.
