Study Abroad

What is Erasmus?

The Erasmus exchange programme enables students to study or work in another European country as part of their degree programme. Perth College UHI is looking to build partnerships across Europe and the opportunities for study abroad depend on the exchange agreements in place.

Eligibility - student mobility

All students, regardless of their nationality, are eligible to participate in this programme as long as they are not in their first year of study – from HND year onwards.  Erasmus students must be registered as full-time students while abroad and fulfil the academic requirements. Students must gain written approval from their lecturers to participate in any exchange before an application is made to the International Centre.  You must also submit a copy of your Transcript of Record which can be taken through myUHI. Exchanges can only take place where there is an agreement between Institutions - if your course is not currently signed up to a partnership then please speak to your lecturers about sourcing possible connections in your chosen European Country.  Applications must be submitted to the International Centre by 15 June for Semester 1 applications and 15 December for semester 2.
