Study abroad Semester abroad with Erasmus+ and Exchange We have a number of partner universities across the world. During your second year as an Undergraduate student, you could spend one semester studying at one of them. You can study in Europe as part of the Erasmus+ programme or overseas in an International Exchange. Doing a semester abroad is an excellent opportunity to experience education in a different country, immerse yourself in a new culture, and learn a new language.

What support is available to me?
Do I need to speak another language?
Will the placement impact my final grade?
To help you with the process, our Go Global team will: • provide you with semesteronly accommodation during your second year at Bath Spa University, • offer pre-departure and returners sessions, • offer continuous one-to-one coaching and advice, should you need it.
Most partner universities teach in English. However, in some countries, such as Mexico, Japan and Taiwan you’ll be expected to have some knowledge of the language. Additional language classes are usually provided by our partner universities.
The placement will not impact on your final grade, however, students who go abroad are more likely to earn higher degrees. You’ll need to complete the equivalent of 60 Bath Spa University credits during your semester abroad, but no actual grades will be transferred – the placement is pass or fail.
