Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. More information can be found on the Erasmus+ website. Through this programme, Kingston has over 120 exchange agreements with European universities, where nominated students can spend a semester or year here, dependent upon each agreement.

These agreements are subject specific. So if you are studying politics at your home institution, then you could potentially 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.

Brexit Update: although the UK has now left the European Union, it has been agreed that the exchange agreements will still operate as usual for the academic year 2021/22.

Erasmus"Studying at Kingston University is such an incredible experience! It is full of opportunities to improve your knowledge in many different fields, join a sports club or learn a new language.

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.

Since January 2021, if a Student Visa is required to enter the UK, formal proof of English language is required. The academic IELTS requirements are shown here. Other accepted language tests are shown here.
