Welcome to the Exchange Finder

The Exchange Finder is our online hub of study abroad opportunities.

Researching for a year or term abroad?

Filter by selecting your home department at Essex and away you go. Alternatively, just hit 'search' to see all of our partner universities, but be aware that some of these may only be available to students from selected departments.

Erasmus+ study exchange partners are those in Europe where you could be eligible to receive Erasmus funding if you are studying abroad in 2022-2023. To find out more about our funding and your year abroad visit our funding and finance pages.

Exchange partners are those outside of Europe - you may still be eligible for funding, so do check our funding and finance pages.


Researching for a summer opportunity?

Filter by selecting the programme type as Summer school, volunteering abroad, internship or research abroad and begin your search for a summer adventure. Do not select your department as summer schools are not linked to departments.

You can find out more about our summer opportunities via our dedicated summer abroad webpages.


Have specific questions that you can't find the answer to?

Book a 1-2-1 with one of the team. These sessions are 15 mins and take place via zoom. Make sure you check our webpages first as they are packed with all the information you need.

Identify as LGBTQ+?

Use the LGBTQ+ travel safety index to help you find the safest (and least safe) countries for your international experience.

Got a question? First check our webpages and if you're still unsure contact Essex Abroad at essexabroad@essex.ac.uk
