Erasmus+ for incoming students

We are delighted that you are interested in Brunel University London as your Erasmus+ destination.

Brunel University London is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London. Born over 50 years ago, Brunel’s distinctive mission has always been to combine academic rigor with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Brunel University London is a recognised institution in the Erasmus+ programme. Not all of our departments and divisions have Erasmus+ partnerships, so you should check with your home university to see if there is a link in your subject area.

Our courses generally run for the full academic year (September to May). However, it is possible to spend less than one year at Brunel University London in the Autumn or Spring Term. Unless you are taking a special project, you will attend the same courses and take the same examinations as students studying a full degree at Brunel University London.

  • If you wish to study with us as an Erasmus+ student, there must be a valid Erasmus+ agreement in place between Brunel University London and your home institution in your field of study.
  • You must be enrolled at least in the second year of higher education and study full time during your Erasmus+ period.
  • You must have the appropriate level of English language qualification we require and only take modules from the subject area in which we have an inter-institutional agreement with your institution.

We can only accept Erasmus+ exchange students if we have an existing Erasmus+ agreement. We cannot sign a new agreement in order to accept a student.
