Program Description:


UGA Exchange, University of Leicester

We think a university should be about empowering people to explore; through passionate, dedicated teaching and innovative, world-changing research. By embracing the fact that every journey is personal, the University has achieved some remarkable results.

Our Study Abroad programme enables international students to take undergraduate modules alongside British students for one semester or an academic year. This may be taken as an accredited part of your degree.
