European Exchanges - ERASMUS

main content


The University of Strathclyde has ERASMUS agreements with more than 200 partner universities throughout Europe. To check if your University has an agreement with Strathclyde, you should contact the ERASMUS/International Office at your home university.  They will be able to confirm if they have an agreement with Strathclyde and which subject area it covers. 

The University of Strathclyde has recently introduced a new online system (Mobility Online) for handling incoming ERASMUS nominations and applications.  The Recruitment and International Office has emailed all partner institutions with login details and a User Guide explaining how to make your nominations.  If you have not received these details please contact the Exchange Team to request this information.  The link to the nomination portal can be found here.  

Mobility Online contains an integrated housing application which applicants will be invited to complete to enable them to outline their housing preferences.  Unfortunately campus housing is not guaranteed to inbound ERASMUS students.  If they submit a housing application and it is unsuccessful, they will receive notification from the Housing Office advising them of alternative options in the private sector which they can explore.

Once a nomination is submitted and approved by the host department at Strathclyde, the applicant will receive an automatic email from Mobility Online inviting them to register with the system to enable them to submit a full ERASMUS Exchange application. As part of this process, the student will require to upload a current academic transcript, an academic reference and a copy of their passport information page.   Partner institutions can track the status of a student's application by logging on to Mobility Online and clicking on the student's name.

Erasmus exchange students usually only need to provide evidence of English language proficiency if they require a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK.  Otherwise, as stated in the ERASMUS+ bilateral agreement, we expect partner Universities to select and nominate students with a good level of English equivalent to B2 or above in the Common European Framework of Reference for language (CEFR)
