Exclusive Exchanges

Undergraduate Archaeology students can apply to study abroad as an additional year abroad (accredited by CIFA) or credit-replacing exchange (not accredited by CIFA).

Please note that the number of places available at each exchange destination can vary from year to year.   

Leiden University (Study in English)

Lund University (Study in English)

How to apply


Summer abroad 

Spending the summer abroad allows you to get a taste of living and working internationally without committing to a full year.

For academic queries, including joint honours options, contact your supervisor or the Departmental International Officer, Dr Matt Jenkins 

University-wide Exchanges

Undergraduate Archaeology students may also apply to study abroad at one of York’s University-wide partners, which are open to students from most other departments at the University.

Students taking an additional year (3+1) will still have their degree accredited by CIFA but those students taking a credit replacement year will not be accredited. For more information please contact the department.
