Generally Erasmus and Study Abroad students are required to study full-time and select modules totaling 60 credits per semester. This typically means four courses per semester (15 credits each). Please note that in the UK 2 credit points (CAT) = 1 ECTS credit.

Please take a look at the courses we offer to help you decide which modules to study. The “Course map” within each degree profile details the modules covered. Once you have applied we will be able to provide further information on the availability and timetabling of modules available in the semester you will study with us.
If your university has an Erasmus or Study Abroad Exchange Agreement with the University of Gloucestershire, you may be eligible to study with us free of charge. Please speak to your home institution’s Erasmus / Study Abroad office to check whether an agreement is in place and whether you qualify for nomination. Please note you may still be required to pay tuition fees to your home institution.
If your institution does not have an exchange agreement with us we welcome you to study with us as a fee-paying Study Abroad student.
Please note that these fees are in addition to any costs for living expenses (e.g. accommodation, bills & subsistence), visas, travel, etc.
If you have a passport from a country from within the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) then you do not need a visa to study in the UK. If you are a passport holder from outside the UK please check visa requirements on our Pre-arrival page.
