In the current world, adaptability and mobility are some of the most valuable skills. Understanding and respecting other cultures is another. You can gain all these skills and have a solid proof to boost your employability by going on an exchange!
At LSBU, we offer you multiple opportunities. To find out more about our programmes, see below.
The Erasmus+ programme allows you to study for a year or a semester in one of our partner institutions within Europe. Additionally, to help you fund your exchange, you can receive a grant of up to €540 per month.
We are currently partnered with many institutions all over Europe. You can view the full list on our partner institutions page.
It was fantastic to meet people from all around the world who were doing the same thing as me. I can honestly say that I had a brilliant time and have definitely gained new skills and developed personally.

Hochschule University of Applied Sciences was something great and truly different from my experience in London. I could never have imagined or predicted the impact that my time studying abroad would have upon my life.
