School of Arts and Media

From Salford to Overseas

Having international experience, gaining an understanding of different cultures, and developing sought-after language skills, are all-important attributes that going abroad gives you, and make you stand-out.

When you study at the School of Arts and Media, you have access to the opportunity to study abroad as part of your learning. 


Erasmus+ is a European Union programme for education and is the primary scheme for studying and working abroad within the participating European countries. It allows you to study abroad for three to twelve months. 

To find out more about participating in the scheme, visit our dedicated Erasmus+ pages for further information.
