SRUC establishes links with other institutions with whom it shares a common framework of courses and subject areas.
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. SRUC is hoping, in the future, to pursue outgoing Erasmus exchange opportunities, requiring approval from our partner Universities.
ERASMUS was introduced with the aim of increasing student mobility within Europe and the main benefit for SRUC of incoming Erasmus students is their impact on SRUC ’s own student body.
Incoming exchange students provide an extra dimension and diversity of opinion to the classes they attend and have the effect of broadening
the horizons of SRUC students.
SRUC welcomes around 20 Erasmus exchange students each year, mainly to the Edinburgh campus but there are oppertunites to go to our other campuses at Aberdeen, Ayr, Barony, Elmwood and Oatridge.
Our ERASMUS partner institutions are all linked to from our webpage. SRUC currently has links with institutions in Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland.
