While you're a student at Falmouth, there are numerous opportunities to study or work abroad as part of your degree. You can study abroad with one of our international partner universities (EU, non-EU & non-funded).
The Study Abroad programme also welcomes students who are enrolled at our European and international university partners to come and study at Falmouth for a semester.
A year or semester abroad can bring a world of opportunities and help to enrich your university experience. Living internationally can help to grow your self-confidence, communication skills and employability. Not only that, it'll also give you an opportunity to improve your language skills and build international friendships that may last a lifetime.
Erasmus+ and the Turing Scheme
Falmouth University has been awarded funding through the new Turing Scheme for the 2021-22 academic year. The Turing Scheme is the UK government's global programme to study and work abroad. The scheme provides funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world. Falmouth University's current Erasmus+ scheme will come to a close in the coming year.
Covid-19 travel restrictions
Due to global uncertainty surrounding travel and health, currently all international study options will be suspended for study block 2. Further information will be provided when the situation changes.

The programmes include institutional staff oversight, arranged accommodation and being part of a travelling team of 10-12 students. There'll be Cultural Immersions available for regions of Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Italy, France and the United States. If you want the opportunity to discover a new culture then pre-register today.
