How to apply

If you're an BSc Architecture or MEng Civil Engineering student at Bath, you may want to consider applying for the Erasmus+ exchange programme.

This enables successful students to live and study in a European institution for either a semester or a full academic year, and takes place in Year 4 of your studies. A €14.7 billion budget enables more than four million Europeans to swap countries to study, train and gain experience abroad.

Interested? You'll find more details and a list of current overseas institutions for architects and civil engineers from Bath, though these are reviewed from time to time so may change.

You can also learn about opportunities in more detail, including eligibility criteria, in the Erasmus+ programme guide.

When to apply

We can't guarantee an Erasmus+ exchange, since limited opportunities are available in each city. Places are allocated competitively by the foreign institutions, rather than Bath, based on your exam results and performance during your third year with us.

This means you won't have to decide whether or not to apply for an exchange until then, when you have a better idea of whether it's right for you.
