Erasmus+

The current Erasmus programme, Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years, from 2014 to 2020. Visit the Erasmus+ website for more information. 

Erasmus exchanges are generally subject specific, so if you are studying politics at your home institution, then you could study politics at Kingston as long as there is an Erasmus agreement between the two relevant departments. 

However, if you wish to study a subject at Kingston which isn't part of the agreement, then you may do through our Study Abroad Programme.

Erasmus exchange students

Spending time at Kingston University as part of your degree offers lots of benefits, including the chance to:

  • explore a different way of life;
  • meet new people;
  • learn a new language or improve your current language skills; and
  • show employers you're flexible and able to take on a challenge.

Erasmus exchange students take the same modules and (usually) the same assessments as Kingston students. This means you integrate fully with student life at the University. Find out about:

Arriving at Kingston

Please book your travel so that you arrive in time for the International Arrivals and Orientation events for international and exchange students. Erasmus students can use the University's airport pick-up service.

You must attend a meeting with your faculty/school Erasmus co-ordinator before starting classes. 

You can also read the pre-arrival guidance for international students.

Lorenzo Marcotullio

"I've really enjoyed my time at Kingston University. Since the first day I instantly felt accepted into a welcoming environment. Staff were very helpful and friendly, encouraging students to get involved with numerous activities in order to get to know new people. A wide variety of societies kept me busy with exciting activities all year long. The University also provided students with many modern facilities to enhance their learning."

Lorenzo Marcotullio, Bologna University - academic year 2016

English Language Requirements

It is assumed that when Erasmus students are nominated by their home university, this is on the basis of being sufficiently competent in English at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Proof of English language is not formally required unless a Tier 4 visa is required to enter the UK. In this case, the requirements are shown on this page.
