Study or work abroad - Go Places Go Further

As Britain left the EU on 31 January 2020, we would like to reassure all students that the terms of the withdrawal agreement outline that the UK will continue to participate in the current Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC) programmes.

The UK Prime Minister has said, “There is no threat to the Erasmus scheme. We will continue to participate. UK students will continue to be able to enjoy the benefits of exchanges with our European friends and partners, just as they will be able to able to come to this country.”

Go international

The University of Derby is committed to supporting students to seek opportunities to study or work abroad through our Go Places, Go Further scheme which includes Erasmus+, exchanges with our university partners as well as our International Travel Awards trips, to give students a truly international experience and global outlook.

Spread your wings and give yourself a head start in today’s global jobs market with our study or work abroad opportunities through Go Places Go Further. Spending time abroad as part of your degree course is a good way to enhance your CV and stand out to future employers.

Studying or working abroad can help you:

You can study abroad for one semester or a whole year, usually during your second year.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please be aware that due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all exchanges for the 1st Semester (September to January) of 2020.
