If you are studying on one of our four year programmes you will spend the whole of your third year at a top university in another European country, enabling you to immerse yourself completely in another culture, language, and of course the art and architecture. 

Through the Erasmus scheme, a programme designed to promote study abroad within the European Union, you can study at one of our partner institutions:

Le Tour Eiffel, Paris

University of Cologne, Germany

University of Florence, Italy

University of Leiden, the Netherlands

Lund University, Sweden

Peking University, China

University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France

University of Vienna, Austria

Rhodes University, South Africa


During your year away, you will remain registered at York and do not need to pay tuition fees at the host institution.  Our Erasmus scheme co-ordinator, Prof Amanda Lillie, is there to support and guide you through the process.

Other opportunities for studying abroad

You don't have to be following a four year programme to spend time studying abroad. The Centre for Global Programmes is the first stop for information about programmes organised by the University, rather than the Department.  They offer a wide range of options offering opportunities in the USA, Canada, Australia and Asia, as well as a range of summer programmes.
