What is Erasmus?

Erasmus is the European Union's flagship educational exchange programme for Higher Education students, teachers and institutions. Due to the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union, funding from Erasmus for students in the UK is no longer available.

SRUC will have future opportunities for exchanges and international activities in future years.

We will be welcoming incoming students in Semester two of 2021-22.

Establishing links with other institutions

We link with other institutions who share a common framework of courses and subject areas. SRUC welcomes around 20 Erasmus exchange students each year, mainly to the Edinburgh campus but there are opportunities to go to our other campuses at Aberdeen, Ayr, Barony, Elmwood and Oatridge.

Students normally come to study at SRUC for one semester, taking modules from our third year (degree year) and carrying credit for these studies back to their home institution.

Students may also come to SRUC to conduct research or a period of internship through the Erasmus scheme.
