Study abroad during your School of Management undergraduate degree

Boost your employability by spending a semester at another top business school through our International Academic Exchange Programme.

Our International Academic Exchange Programme lets you spend time at one of many top business schools around the world.

The programme is optional on these courses:

Studying abroad is an invaluable experience. As well as spending time learning about another culture, you’ll also:

  • develop your international business knowledge
  • enhance your CV
  • improve your language skills (IMML courses)
  • make new friends and network

‘This has honestly been the best six months of my life so far. You meet people from all over the world, study a brilliant range of classes, and get to explore an incredible country.’

Our global connections

We work with over 35 business schools across Europe, Latin America, Australia, Canada, Asia, South Africa and the United States.

We want to help make sure your time studying abroad is as simple and stress-free as possible.

The European Commission has awarded the University an Erasmus charter. This means we can take part in the Erasmus+ Programme and you can apply for funding for support.

Through our International Academic Exchange Programme, you can also expect:

  • no extra tuition fees to study abroad
  • lessons taught in English (except those studying IMML)
  • a selection of pre-agreed units for you to study
  • support with getting a study visa

We support the Erasmus Credit Transfer System (ECTS) for exchanges in Europe and have the same credit system for our courses. This means Bath and universities in other European countries will recognise your grades.

Students who study outside of Europe will have their marks converted.

We cannot guarantee you an exchange at a specific business school, but our International Exchanges Team will help you throughout the process.

Information for Erasmus+ students could change depending on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. Read the University's latest Brexit advice for EU students.
