Students from Exchange partners

If you're a student from one of our partner universities around the world, our exchange programme gives you the chance to study in the UK for a semester as part of your degree programme.

As an exchange student at Anglia Ruskin, you'll study on one of our two main campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford, both of which are just 45 minutes away from London.

All of our courses are modular and credit bearing, which means that - providing your home institution belongs to the credit conversion system - the credits gained at our University will be recognised as part of your degree programme. (Please check details on credit recognition with your home university's Study Abroad office.)

To take part in our exchange programme, you’ll have to be a current full-time student on an appropriate course at one of our partner universities:

If you're not currently studying at one of our partner universities, consider applying to our Study Abroad programme.

Visa information (for non-EU students)

If you want to study in the UK for a full year and are a non-EU student you'll need to obtain a Tier 4 student visa.

If you're coming to study for one trimester and are a non-EU student you will be on a short-term study visa which doesn't allow you to work while here.

If you're an EU student starting in September 2020, you won't need a visa to enter the UK. From January 2021, new immigration rules are scheduled to be introduced by the UK Government which are likely to affect EU students. As soon as the details are confirmed we will provide further guidance on our Brexit information page.
