Study or work in Europe

In this section



Erasmus+ is the European Commission's education programme for UK education, training, youth and sport opportunities across Europe.

A number of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes provide opportunities for Goldsmiths students to study or undertake a traineeship abroad as part of their studies.

Places are awarded on the basis of academic ability, enthusiasm and ambassadorial qualities. If you're awarded a place, you will also receive funding and linguistic support. 

As well as giving you the experience of living and studying in another country, it is likely to help you later in life – research shows unemployment rates for Erasmus alumni are 23% lower than for other graduates five years after leaving university. 

Visit our Careers section to find out more about many interesting opportunities to enhance your employability skills.

More information

In 2014, Goldsmiths, University of London received confirmation that it has been granted the new Erasmus University Charter for Higher Education (2014/15-2020/21), a requirement for participating in the programme. In accordance with the compliance principles involved in attaining this Charter, the University welcomes students from Europe coming on the Erasmus exchange via an inter-institutional agreement, and seeks to allow, and give full recognition to, Goldsmiths students wanting to take advantage of the European Study Abroad options available to them.

All Erasmus+ opportunities are subject to Goldsmiths receiving sufficient funding from the European Commission each year. The UK remains a member of the Erasmus+ programme whilst Brexit negotiations are underway; information about this from the National Agency can be found here.
