The Department of History encourages students in the third year (Junior Sophister) of undergraduate study to consider spending all or part of the academic session studying at an overseas university. There are two types of exchange programmes offered:
The College operates exchange programmes with a range of top institutions across the world. These are non-fee-paying exchanges and a great opportunity for you to study for half a year or a full year at some of the best universities outside Europe. International exchanges are available in Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Singapore and the US. For a full list of non-EU exchange partner universities click here.
Closer to home, students may also study at one of the following European institutions, with which the Department has formal exchange agreements:
