Erasmus and exchange

Erasmus and exchange students

Every year the School of Psychology welcomes a large number of Erasmus and exchange students.

Visiting students take one or more modules with us and enjoy the challenges of studying in a different country.

Birmingham's School of Psychology has an international reputation and was ranked 3rd in the UK in the latest Research Assessment Exercise. 


You may choose from a wide range of modules. For a complete list download our module catalogue (PDF - 92KB).

All Level 1 and Level 2 modules are open to visiting students, with some exceptions for the Research Methods modules.

While no background in Psychology is assumed for Level 1 modules, Level 2 modules can be challenging if you have not taken any Psychology modules at your home university.

Level 3 modules are subject to availability and can only be chosen by students with a strong background in Psychology (about 120 ECTS in relevant areas).

Please be aware that certain modules are very popular. Unless pre-approved on the basis of your application (you will receive this information from the International Office), we cannot guarantee you a place.
