Our Erasmus exchange partners and course details (including the language of instruction) are listed below. It is also possible to do an Erasmus exchange at a University that is not listed as a partner for Psychology but that we do have a partnership with in another department or at a university-wide level. If you would like to complete such an exchange, please note that it is your responsibility to contact the Erasmus Coordinator at that University and make the necessary enquiries and arrangements.  Specifically, you will need to identify suitable replacement courses covering the content of the courses you would have taken in Aberdeen.

Eligibility:

  • Exchange is only possible in Year 2 of study due to BPS accreditation requirements.
  • The academic threshold is an overall B2 average with no D-level marks.

Course selection while abroad:

  • Unless you are fluent in the language of the host country, you will need to take courses taught in English. Please check the universities’ webpages for more up-to-date information or get in touch with an Erasmus coordinator at that University. (Please note that the university service culture can be quite different at other institutions. Be aware that you might not receive the same degree of responsiveness and accommodation to your needs that you would receive at Aberdeen.)
  • Please be aware that you need to pass each course while abroad to receive the corresponding course credit in Aberdeen.  Course requirements may be different and pass/fail rates may be different from Aberdeen.
  • You must be able to take one or more Research Methods and Statistics courses. Ideally, statistics should be taught in English.

For additional information about the Erasmus Exchange application process or practical queries, contact the Erasmus office. For questions about your program of study during exchange, contact the Erasmus coordinator in Psychology, Dr. Joost Rommers.
