Exchange partners by discipline

How to find an exchange institution

Exchange partnerships are agreements between the University of Southampton and a partner university. The agreement may apply to a specific academic subject, to an entire faculty, or to the whole University. Exchange partner universities available to students studying any academic discipline are detailed under the University-wide Programmes.

For each subject in each institution, we have indicated who is eligible to apply for an exchange. We have used the following abbreviations:

UG: Undergraduate - PGT: Taught postgraduate - PGR: Research postgraduate - PhD: PhD Students - S: Staff

The language/s of instruction is shown beside the universities name, for example: English (EN), French (FR), Spanish (ES), Italian (IT), German (DE), Dutch (NL).


Please be advised: There are some degree programs which do not allow for a period of exchange. If you are unsure whether or not your course allows for an exchange, please contact your exchange coordinator.
