Population Health Sciences

Study Abroad opportunities for students studying in the Faculty of Population Health Sciences for 2023-24.

Before you begin researching and choosing your university preferences, you must read the How to Decide Guide in full.


On pages 4, 8 and 9, you will find important information about the application process and an explanation of the ‘Levels of Demand’ listed next to each institution. The key to a strong application is to diversify your preferences list and consider a wide range of factors in your university research. You are advised to include a maximum of one Ultra High Demand and one Very High Demand placement in your preference list.

The number of exchange places available at each of our partner institutions is negotiated on an annual basis, which means that it does fluctuate. Changes can be made to exchange numbers, or agreements can be pulled altogether, with very little notice. Please do remember this when you're thinking about your exchange options and remember - the key to becoming a Global Citizen is to have an open mind! Due to the UK’s departure from the Erasmus programme, arrangements with some of our partners are still in progress

If you have questions about institutions you would like to apply to, please open an enquiry via askUCL. Our partners kindly ask that you do not contact them directly.
