Study Abroad opportunities for students studying in the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences for 2021-22.

To help you make the best application, we have marked each institution with a level of demand. Please remember that you are advised not to list more than one 'Very High' demand institution on your application.

The number of exchange places available at each of our partner institutions is negotiated on an annual basis, which means that it does fluctuate. Changes can be made to exchange numbers, or agreements can be pulled altogether, with very little notice. Please do remember this when you're thinking about your exchange options and remember - the key to becoming a Global Citizen is to have an open mind! 

If you have questions about institutions you would like to apply to, please open an enquiry via askUCL. Our partners kindly ask that you do not contact them directly.
