Partner Universities – Bath Spa University

Become globally connected. We've partnered with over 50 universities and institutions around the world.

You'll have the opportunity to study with one of our partners through our Erasmus+ or International Exchange programmes.

Your chosen university must offer your subject area, so we encourage you to conduct your own research into the universities you are interested in applying to. Unless otherwise specified, the taught language at all our partner universities is English.

International Exchange partners

Australia

Canada

China

Please note: Christmas is not recognised in China and is not a national holiday. Chinese New Year is usually celebrated in January or February and is a national holiday.

Japan

Please note: Students must have a basic understanding of the Japanese language to conversation level. Many classes are taught in Japanese with support being given in English.

Mexico

Please note that some subjects at Tec de Monterrey are only taught in Spanish. However, language classes are offered to all exchange students.

Taiwan

Please note: Classes taught in English will be identified for students as part of their study programme. A basic understanding of Mandarin is preferred but not essential.

United States

Please note: It is usual in American universities to share bedrooms with one or two other students. There are limited self-catering facilities in American accommodation. American universities make use of 'meal plans' which students can normally purchase to be entitled to 3 meals a day in the food halls.

  • Geneseo
    State University of New York College at Geneseo (SUNY Geneseo)* (Open to all subject areas taught at SUNY Geneseo)

European exchange partners

If you go abroad to study in Europe, you'll be eligible to receive additional funding in the form of an Erasmus+ mobility grant, which is paid to you via Bath Spa University.

Even though the UK is no longer part of the EU, we are able to continue to offer Erasmus+ funding until the end of the 2022/23 academic year. After this date, opportunities to study in Europe will still be available, and we are continuing to expand our partnership agreements to offer as many international opportunities as possible.

Please note, you may be asked to apply for a visa in order to live in your European host country. Your host institution will provide you with instructions on how to apply for a visa.
