Semester/Year AbroadPartner universities

Strathclyde has Student Exchange Agreements in place with a wide range of universities around the world. These agreements are coordinated by the Exchange Team in the Recruitment and International Office and the SBS Exchange Team for students taking a Business degree.

Semester/year abroad is normally open to students in all Faculties provided your course doesn't have any restrictions (e.g. professional accreditation requirements).

SBS students should contact the SBS Exchange Team for further details on sbs-exchange@strath.ac.uk.

All other students should contact the Exchange Team in the Recruitment and International Office on outbound-exchange@strath.ac.uk.
