Study Abroad

This page is for outgoing Warwick students interested in going abroad to study mathematics. Click here for information for incoming students coming to Warwick on an Exchange year.

Studying abroad

For their year abroad, students pay some tuition fees to the University of Warwick (charged at 15% of the fee for a standard year) and no fees to the host institution, although some universities may charge for a student card which allows students to register and travel at student prices (around £200 per semester). The UK is no longer part of the Erasmus+ scheme; the replacement is the Turing Scheme. More information about funding available under this scheme can be found on the Mobility Team Webpages.

In general teaching at the partner institutions is in the local language (see below). It is normally expected that students applying for a Study Abroad placement will already have basic competence in the relevant language (for example from school, or by taking language modules as options since arriving at Warwick).

The Year Abroad is taken after two complete years of study in Warwick. There are three options:

  • BSc with Intercalated Year (G101): Open to students with at least a good 2.1 mark. The year abroad does not contribute to the final degree mark; you resume your studies in Warwick with the 3rd year, leading to the BSc degree (G101) from Warwick University.
  • MMath with Intercalated Year (G105): Open to students on the four-year MMath degree course with at least a good 2.1 mark. The year abroad does not contribute to the final mark; you resume your studies in Warwick with the 3rd year, receiving the MMath degree (G105) from Warwick University after two more years of study.
  • MMath with Study in Europe (G106): Open to students on the four-year MMath degree course with strong marks. The year abroad is instead of the 3rd year of studies in Warwick; the marks you obtain whilst abroad contribute to your final degree mark. You resume your studies in Warwick with the 4th year of the MMath. (The Finals Exam Board secretary will confirm how many of your year abroad modules can count towards the MA4 CATS requirement). This leads to an MMath degree (G106) from Warwick University.

Here are the relevant course regulations. The above programs are open to students enrolled in G100 and G103 only. There are further exchange programs open to other students, but they are run by the partner departments: Mathematics and Business Studies (with Intercalated Year) (G1N2) and Mathematics and Economics (with Intercalated Year) (GL12).

Exchanges are only possible with universities that have an official link with the Department of Mathematics, and there are strict restrictions on the number of students sent to each university. Below are the universities with exchange agreements with Warwick for the 2023/24 academic year:

Belgium: Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).

France: Université Grenoble Alpes, Sorbonne Université, Université de Strasbourg.

Germany: Universität Bremen, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Technische Universität Berlin.

Italy: Università degli Studi di Padova.

NB: Please check the local language. Some universities may offer some classes in English. Please read the experiences of other students to see whether there are options in English at the university of your choice or visit the university website.
