Exchange opportunities

If you have the necessary language skills, you may choose to spend part or all of your second year studying at one of these universities; courses taken at these institutions would contribute to your degree. Language courses are available through Modern Languages and Linguistics at Southampton to help you improve your skills in order to study abroad.

Postgraduate exchange opportunities

We have recently established an exchange programme with the Department of Politics and International Relations at Stockholm University, Sweden for research students and postdoctoral staff. This is an exciting opportunity to carry out research in a different institution and benefit from the range of expertise available in Stockholm.

For more information, have a look at the departmental website and staff interests at Stockholm University. If you would like to make use of this opportunity, please discuss it with our head of research, PGR coordinator and your supervisor(s).
