Interested in spreading your wings and travelling to new places? Take a look at our current exchange opportunities to get you on course.
An exchange is a swap between two students. This occurs due to special partnerships that have been developed by our faculties, departments and courses with individual overseas institutions. 
Exchanges are usually subject area specific, such as a swap between two history students; however, where spaces are unused, students from other subject areas may be put forward to fill the space, depending on the subject area and partner agreement. 
We've put together a list of of our partners by subject area to help both Plymouth and international students get a feel for what is available. 
If you want to come and have a chat please email us to make an appointment.
Appointments are generally available Monday to Friday between 10:00–11:30 and 14:00–15:30 on a pre-arranged basis.
