Short-Term Mobilities

Short-Term Mobilities

If you are keen to enhance your studies at University of Aberdeen with some time abroad, but a full semester or year-long exchange or traineeship doesn't suit your circumstances, then you may wish to consider a short-term mobility.  Many universities worldwide offer short term mobility programmes, normally summer or winter schools taking place over semester breaks, allowing you to gain an international experience and enrich your CV. 

Funding

Most host institutions will charge a tuition or participation fee for summer/winter schools. If the programme is offered at one of our partner universities the fee may be discounted, waived or additional benefits like free accommodation offered. Where discounts or benefits are available to Aberdeen students this is noted in the information below.

Please get in touch with GoAbroad.Outgoing@abdn.ac.uk if you are interested in an opportunity which requires us to nominate you.

In addition to tuition fees, you should consider travel, accommodation and living costs. Often these will be outlined on the partner university's webpages.
