International partnershipThe School of Education is an international community where people come to study and work from all over the world. Their varied cultural experiences and unique intellectual skills, knowledge and interests, are central to the development of our distinctive identity and work.  Some students come through international exchanges, e.g. Erasmus, whilst others may visit from their home universities, for up to 3 months, as part of their doctoral and post-doctoral work.   

The School of Education is both the host institution and a collaborator in international projects, through which academic staff research, develop and inform multiple and diverse aspects of education. This includes the Aberdeen Confucius Institute, established in 2012 in partnership with Wuhan University.

Looking forward, and in harmony with the University’s strategic aims, the School of Education is committed to embedding our culture of internationalisation across all our activities. This will involve continuing to reference and utilise global information and data, increasing the number of international students studying in the School, enabling more of our students to have international educational experiences and building upon existing and initiating new, international partnerships.


Students from the School of Education may study abroad as part of their courses and degrees through Erasmus exchanges.  For more informationon Erasmus contact Mary Stephen, Eramus Coordinator.
