Exchange and free mover opportunities

Seize the opportunity to travel through our links with international organisations and other academic institutions. 

You'll find student exchange opportunities with our partner universities in Europe, North America and the rest of the world and through ISEP, the International Student Exchange Program.

Free mover students

Free mover students are 'non-degree' students, making their own arrangements. As a free mover student, you are not involved in an exchange programme and are required to pay a tuition fee at the University of Plymouth for the modules you study.

You can apply to study for one or two semesters and will need to submit an application confirming the modules you are interested in studying. 

After consultation with the department in question, and subject to entry requirements and any prerequisites for the modules, free movers can attend courses and lectures and acquire credit points if your home university agrees to recognise them.
