Most undergraduate students can apply to go on exchange with their academic department's approval.
You will need to have an average of at least 55% in your studies that you have completed at the application deadline. If you have double modules during your first year we need written confirmation from your module leaders stating that you are likely to achieve this.

Please visit our Exchange Partners pages for information on what each university has to offer. It is important to find out whether you can find the appropriate number of modules relevant to your Oxford Brookes degree.
Yes! All exchange students gain credits (not grades/ marks) which will count towards their Brookes degree.

Most students will go on exchange during Year 2 of their degree. The main application deadline is in February so you will need to start planning your exchange right from the beginning of your first year. It might be also possible to go on exchange for Semester 1 during your third year. Discuss this with the relevant member of staff in your faculty.

Before you leave, you will need to pay your tuition fees to Oxford Brookes or to confirm with Oxford Brookes that your Student Loans Company will contribute towards your fees as usual. You might be also entitled to a tuition fee waiver. You do not have to pay any tuition fees to the host university.

You will be responsible for costs such as purchasing your airfares, travel and accommodation. Other costs you need to consider are health insurance and visas. You may qualify for a travel grant from Student Finance England that may reimburse you for some of the costs.

If the institution is in a country where English is not the official language you will need to check whether they teach in English. In some case it is essential to have a good knowledge of the language of the country. Find out more about Erasmus+ online language support.
The Erasmus+ European programme offers intensive language courses outside the normal study programme. You can also take one language module during your 1st year at Brookes in addition to your degree modules.
You will discuss this with the relevant member of staff in your faculty during the application process.
