Why not double your fun and your educational experience whilst studying in the
UK, by participating in the ERASMUS
student exchange programme? You can live and study in another European country,
experience a different culture, learn a new language and gain a fresh
perspective on your study course. And it's probably the only way you'll ever
get a suntan as part of a UK degree course!

Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) enables
undergraduates to study for 3-12 months in another EU country or affiliated
state. It is forms part of the European Union's education programme; SOCRATES,
