Exchange students in the College of Arts and Law

Every year around 800 students from abroad come and study here at the University for one term or a full academic year.

Year after year, the visiting students report that the time they spend living in Britain is profitable and enjoyable, both academically and socially. It is, for many students, a significantly formative experience and a very special memory.

As a Humanities Erasmus/Exchange student you may choose from a wide range of modules.

  • If you intend to study with us for one academic year, you should register for 120 credits (20 Birmingham credits = 10 ECTS); if you are going to be with us for one semester only, it is 60 credits.
  • At the end of your study period we will automatically send a transcript of your marks to your home university.
  • There is a compulsory induction meeting for all College of Arts and Law students during Welcome Week.

Language buddy scheme

As an Erasmus/Exchange student in the College of Arts and Law you have the opportunity to participate in the Language buddy scheme. You will be paired up with a home student who is studying your language here at Birmingham, and this will help you to improve your English and to more easily integrate into the community on campus.
