International Study Abroad Exchanges outside of Europe

For students that wish to participate in a study exchange outside of Europe, the University of Lincoln has a growing number of partners worldwide, including USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, and Japan.

Who can study abroad and how to apply?
To study abroad as an exchange student, either through Erasmus+ or via an international exchange programme you must:

  • Study in a School or on a programme which has a link with an international partner institution
  • Be registered at the University as an undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral student
  • Have successfully completed your first year of undergraduate study
  • Have sufficient academic and linguistic ability (where necessary) to be able to benefit from a study period abroad

Our Overseas Partnerships page lists all current opportunities available by students by course. Please check with your Exchanges coordinator for more details and to discuss other potential opportunities, or email for more information.

For incoming exchange students to Lincoln

Any exchange must first be accepted via your exchanges partner before applying directly to the University.

Study Abroad for students from non-partners

Our Study Abroad programme welcomes students from all over the world. We provide you with the opportunity to study for one semester or one year alongside students completing a University of Lincoln undergraduate degree, in any discipline of study. Applications (Study Abroad application form [MsWord]) should be made directly to the University and sent to

Study Programmes
We recommended that Study Abroad students choose from one programme at one level to allow for timetabling restrictions. However, students may be able to select modules from across the University to enrich their experience, subject to timetabling and approval.

Students must meet any pre-requisites stated in the module description. If students do select modules from across the 4 University Colleges, then at least half the academic programme must be based in one subject area.

Study programmes will be finalised once enrolment has been completed. Admission to any University of Lincoln module is at the discretion of the admitting School.

Ana Maria Barcelos GuerraThe study and teaching methods in Lincoln are very agreeable. The professors are very polite and the university is an attractive option for international students. This is because of all of the societies on offer, the nice library, the restaurants, the accommodation and the good location (close to the city centre – everything is within walking distance!). The students feel complete when studying at the University of Lincoln. Ana Maria Barcelos Guerra, Brasil
