Apply to the St Mary's Study Abroad programme

Step 1: Choose the application option that fits you

Please select the correct option before clicking on the application links. All students studying at St Mary’s may choose modules from a number of degree programmes as well as participate in the + Internship pathway.

Fee-paying Study Abroad

This pathway is open to students from our non-exchange partner universities around the world. Students may also select this option if they are studying at a non-partner university or if they are interested in coming to us for their first year of university.


Exchange is open to students at our partner universities with an exchange agreement. Please check with the Study Abroad team at your home university before you select this option.

Workplace Learning Internships

All students studying with us through Study Abroad or exchange may also gain international work experience and academic credits with our Workplace Learning Internships. To apply, please select the correct application option ‘with internship.’ Once your application has been processed, you will receive a link requesting more details about your professional interests and work experience to help the Workplace Learning Team find you a placement. Students participating in work placements must apply for a student visa before entering the UK.

Step 2: Apply to study at St Mary's

Our online application system allows you to apply to spend a semester or full 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 and choose the correct application link for your circumstances.

If you are enrolled at one of our Study Abroad or Exchange partners, you must be nominated by your home university before applying to study with us. Please contact your Study Abroad or Erasmus Office for more details.
