Erasmus and International Exchange

Study at Goldsmiths for one or two terms on an international exchange programme, including Erasmus+.

Primary page content

International exchange programmes allow students currently studying at a university outside of the UK to study at Goldsmiths for a semester or an academic year. Goldsmiths must have an exchange agreement, such as an Erasmus+ partnership, with your university in order for you to study at Goldsmiths as an exchange student.

If Goldsmiths does not have an exchange agreement with your university, you may still be able to study with us on our Study Abroad programme.

Exchange partners

Goldsmiths has many exchange partners, both within Europe and outside of Europe.
