Apply to the St Mary's Study Abroad programme

Step 1: Choose a pathway that suits your area of interest

We offer three Study Abroad pathways:

Study Abroad

If you study at one of our partner universities, you can apply as a Study Abroad student, choosing modules from a number of degree programmes.

Study Abroad + Internship

Gain crucial work experience within your field of interest whilst earning credits with our Workplace Learning Internships.


We welcome students from a number of European partners on the Erasmus+ programme.

Step 2: Choose a suitable course

Look through the list of modules offered within our Study Abroad  programmes. Please consult your advisors at your home university  to ensure that credits gained at St Mary’s will transfer back to your degree.

If you are applying for the Study Abroad + Internship programme, you will need to choose two or three additional modules.

Step 3: Apply to study at St Mary's

If you are enrolled at one of our Study Abroad partner institutions, please contact your Study Abroad Office. If you are applying to St Mary's as an exchange student you must be nominated by your home university before applying.

If you are not enrolled at one of our partner institutions, please contact before you apply.

You can apply online to spend a semester or a year at St Mary’s University.  The process is quick and easy. We suggest that you read our application guidance carefully before starting your application.

There are various opportunities available so please ensure that you choose the link relevant to your programme.
