Students of maths or physics whose knowledge of foreign languages extends beyond Fortran 2008 and into the realm of European (spoken) languages can take part in the Socrates / Erasmus exchange with universities in France, Germany, Italy, Portugal or Spain. These pages attempt to provide valuable information for first and second-year students contemplating such an exchange.
The School of Physics and Astronomy's links are with universities in France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Subject to conditions, students can follow any of our BSc courses and their degree will be classed as with study in Continental Europe. There is also the option of following an MSci programme with study in Continental Europe. For the BSc route, the year abroad is designed for students to experience life in another country, but for which the final mark obtained in examinations abroad will not contribute significantly to the final degree classification. For the MSci route, the year abroad is counted as the third year of a degree programme and therefore contributes to the degree classification in the normal way.
