The University of Strathclyde has ERASMUS agreements with more than 200 universities throughout Europe and welcomes around 500 inbound exchange students to Strathclyde each year.
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 there is an agreement and which subject areas it covers.
ERASMUS Nominations and Applications
All ERASMUS nominations should be made online by the partner University via the link below. If a partner University requires login details, please contact the Exchange Team on email@example.com

In addition to completing an online application, applicants will require to upload the following supporting documents:-

Guide to Selecting Classes
Exchange students usually take classes/courses amounting to 60 Strathclyde credits (30 ECTS credits) per semester. This is considered a regular full-time load.
ERASMUS students should select most of their classes/courses from the Strathclyde department which owns the ERASMUS agreement. It may be possible to take one or two classes from another department if you meet the prerequisites, if the other department approves them, and if the classes timetable effectively around your main classes.
For details of available classes/courses, please refer to the Guide to Selecting Classes
