The Erasmus Scheme
During your time at Leeds Met you will have the option of studying in Europe through the Erasmus Scheme. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience a different educational and cultural environment.
Within Cultural Studies, Erasmus exchanges are organised with universities in St.Methodius University of Veliko Turnovo in Bulgaria, Universiteit Utrecht in the Netherlands, St.Methodius University of Veliko Turnovo in Bulgaria, Tarragona in Catalonia (east Spain), Eotvos Lorand University Budapest in Hungary, Le Havre in Northwest France, Limerick in Ireland, Ostrava in the Czech Republic and Sibiu in Romania. For more information on our partner universities, please click on the links in the right hand column.
We encourage second year students to take part in the Erasmus scheme during the second semester. Should you take part in the scheme you will be eligible for a grant to cover some of the extra costs incurred by your trip.
Some of the many reasons to take part in the Erasmus scheme are:
- To gain a new perspective on your subject area
- To increase your employability within an international market
- To improve your language skills
- To gain credits which will count towards your degree
- To become more independent and confident
- To travel and make new friends
- To have one of the most exciting experiences of your life!
You do not necessarily need the relevant language skills as our partner institutions teach in English.
