The Erasmas student exchange programme

Through the Erasmus student exchange programme, we welcome students from across Europe, and from our partner colleges, to study and/or undertake a work placement at New College Durham. It's an excellent opportunity to experience the English culture, meet new people and learn new skills. Working abroad will also show potential employers that you are motivated, independent and adaptable.
