Erasmus Exchanges


Students wishing to come to Sheffield should click here for some more information.

If you are a Sheffield student taking the four-year MMath degree then it is possible to spend either one or two semesters of your third year abroad at one of our European partner institutions (provided you have adequate knowledge of the language). This is as part of the ERASMUS Programme. The Erasmus part of the programme covers student exchanges (EuRopean Action Scheme for Mobility of University Students). This exchange scheme only covers study at one of our partner universities in Europe. It is also possible for postgraduates (MSc and PhD) to participate in the Erasmus programme and visit one of our European partner institutions for a period of between 3 and 9 months with the agreement of your supervisor. (If you are interested in spending a year abroad in Australia, Canada or the USA then click here for some more information.) About forty students from our partner universities come to Sheffield each year and usually they take level 3 or level 4 courses. A few may take level 2 or level 1.

Under the Erasmus scheme you can only go abroad during year three of the four-year MMath programme (not if you are taking any of our dual degrees) and you may only go to one of our partner universities with whom we have bilateral exchange agreements. This ensures that details such as tuition fees and additional grants are handled under funded EU programmes. We have about twenty-five partner universities in ten countries. A general guide to starting at Universities in France and Germany (subject to change) is available here.
