Program Overview

Program Description:

Are you an undergraduate at a university outside the UK that doesn't have an exchange agreement with the University of Portsmouth? The Study Abroad programme gives you the chance to study with us for one term or a full academic year.

When you apply to come to Portsmouth on the Study Abroad programme, you'll choose to study in the faculty that best corresponds with your current studies – either Business and Law, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Creative and Cultural Industries, or Technology.

To join us for September entry (for either a full year or 1 term exchange), you'll need to get your application to us by 19 August 2019. For January entries (1 term exchange only), the closing date for applications is 9 December 2019.

You'll have to pay fees for the duration of your stay – the following figures are for our undergraduate Study Abroad programme, and are accurate for the 2019/2020 academic year:

  • If you're an EU national, you can expect to pay £4,625 for one term, or £9,250 for a full academic year.
  • If you're a non-EU national, you can expect to pay £6,000 for one term, or £12,000 for full academic year.

We also offer some opportunities to join the Study Abroad programme at postgraduate level.

If you can pay your tuition fees in full, you can take advantage of our 2% prompt payment discount. Full year applicants can pay their fees in 2 instalments, 6 months apart: but you won't be entitled to the 2% discount if you choose to do this.

You'll study in classes, go to lectures, seminars and tutorial classes with our other full-time students, and gain invaluable first-hand experience of studying in a different academic environment.

Your home university will have to approve your exchange to Portsmouth, but assuming they do, at the end of your studies, you'll receive a transcript that shows the academic credits you've gained with us, which can be transferred back to your home institution.
