Study UK

Study UK, by the British Council, is the UK’s national campaign to promote the UK as a first-choice study destination to students all over the world, and works in partnership with the UK government’s GREAT Britain campaign, which encourages people to visit, invest, and study in the UK.

Join their in-depth webinars for anyone interested in studying in the UK post-Brexit  - hosted by experts and students  - to find out how to succeed with your application and get your studies in the UK off to a flying start. Some input sessions are aimed at student wishing to complete a degree programme in the UK, while others are relevant to short-term international and exchange students, too. 

Find the full programme of Study UK webinars in October 2022 and February 2023 here:  or click the image below. 

Note that these events are externally organised and not all of the participating universites are partners of Trier University.

ERASMUS+ Partner Universities

The Department of English Studies has exchange partners in a range of European countries. The information booklet below will give you more thorough information on which universities are available for an Erasmus+ exchange through our Department, the information you should consider before you apply, and how the application process works. If you have further questions you are welcome to contact the departmental Erasmus+/European Exchange Coordinator, Mrs C Maas (cmmaasuni-trierde), her assistant, Magda Miksch (, or the departmental study advisor, Dr B Kraft (kraftbuni-trierde). 

A note on Brexit / exchanges with the UK:  We have worked closely with our British partner universities to continue our exchange agreements now that the UK is no longer in the EU.  In almost all cases, our new agreements include comparable conditions to ERASMUS+ exchanges (e.g. no tuition fees, monthly stipend) – though these are subject to final approval, which we will have before you apply to your host university.

Another key difference is that you now need a passport (not just an ID card!) to enter the UK, plus a “Tier 4 Student Visa” (NOT the “short-term study visa”!) if you plan to stay there for longer than 6 months or if do not have EU citizenship. You can check visa requirements at
