Welcome to the Exchange Finder

The exchange finder is our online hub of study abroad opportunities.

Researching for a year or term abroad?

Filter by selecting your home department at Essex and away you go. Alternatively, just hit 'search' to see all of our partner universities, but be aware that some of these may only be available to students from selected departments.

For information on funding opportunities, please visit our funding and finance pages.

Researching for a summer opportunity?

*Our opportunities are shown when applications are open, so if you don't see much, check back later in the year!*

Filter by selecting the programme type as Summer school, volunteering abroad, internship or research abroad and begin your search for a summer adventure. Do not select your department as summer schools are not linked to departments.

You can find out more about our summer opportunities via our dedicated summer abroad webpages including summer funding opportunities.

Have specific questions that you can't find the answer to?

Book a 1-2-1 with one of the team. These sessions are 15 mins and take place via zoom. Make sure you check our webpages first as they are packed with all the information you need.
