Education - exchange modules

Plymouth Institute of Education works with a range of partners to offer high-quality research, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. 

We recognise that developing close links with students and colleagues from other countries and cultures is an essential part of supporting intercultural understanding and of underpinning the development of a shared understanding of the benefits of education to the individual and the societies in which we live. 

We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate exchange opportunities linked to the following courses:

Undergraduate: BEd (Hons) Primary, BA (Hons) Education Studies and BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies
