European Study and Exchange

NUA holds a current Erasmus Charter which means that students can benefit from an accredited period of study abroad as part of their degree.

Students can take between three months and one year of their course in a European study destination as part of the British Council Erasmus programme and each year there are a number of opportunities for students to undertake exchanges to approved European partner universities with the benefit of Erasmus funding support. For further information email erasmus@nua.ac.uk.


“My time at NUA was dynamic, exciting and motivational. I was awed by the number of opportunities offered by the University. My inbox was always bursting with news about speakers, exhibitions, open-calls etc.”
