Studying at UAL as an Exchange Student
You can only apply to UAL for study mobility if your institution has a formal exchange agreement with us.
Applying for a place as an exchange student
You need to apply for a place through your institution. UAL cannot receive any direct application from students, we only accept applications sent by our partner institutions.
There are two types of agreements:
- Erasmus bilateral agreements: Erasmus mobility is based on contractual documents called bilateral agreements; they are created between two European institutions to enable student and staff exchanges. Erasmus bilateral agreements are governed by European Commission rules and include Erasmus grants.
- Non Erasmus agreements: UAL has signed other agreements with non-European universities allowing student or staff exchange.
Note that exchange periods vary according to each College and each course.
To get the list of UAL partners for each course, the possible periods of mobility and the application deadlines there are two important sources of information:
- The map of UAL partner institutions in the world
- Table of Exchange Opportunities Incoming (PDF 90KB) - with periods and deadlines
If there is no agreement in place in the relevant subject area, you can still apply to our fee-paying
Study Abroad programme.
