The University of Hertfordshire is located in a prime location. You'll be only half an hour from central London, and within easy reach of all four of the capital's international airports. The university has an attractive, safe campus that provides a real home away from home. Hertfordshire offers a full range of courses for students with a wide variety of majors, including Business and Computer Science.


This exchange is open to all majors, though Business and Computer Science majors are particularly encouraged to apply. UW-Whitewater students can choose from courses across the University of Hertfordshire curriculum. Students will take 3-4 courses for a total of 45-60 UK credits, equaling approximately 12-16 UW-W credits.

The University of Hertfordshire offers exchange students a wide variety of course options in areas of study, including Creative Arts, Education, Health and Social Work, Humanities, Computer Science, Engineering and Technology, Business, Computer Science,  as well as Physics, Astronomy, and Mathematics. More program offerings and course strutcture information can be found on their webpage. Complete course information can be found in their online course catalog.


Housing is coordinated through the University of Hertfordshire, where most international students live on campus. There is a mix of accommodation styles available for exchange students including traditional halls of residence, flats, and houses. If preferred, a home-stay can be arranged for international students. Accommodation is guaranteed for academic year exchange students, and the University will endeavor a place for semester exchange students in on-campus housing, although this cannot be guaranteed.


Student Life and Surroundings

However you like to spend your down time, you will have plenty of options at the University of Hertfordshire. The Student’s Union is a popular place for students to spend their time. There is live music, bars, and events held regularly throughout the year at the Student’s Union.

There are also countless clubs and societies for students to get involved in from literature to film making. Students are also able to join competitive as well as recreational sports. “Boasting some of the best sports and fitness facilities in the country, our £15 million sports village is a great place to get fit, get competitive or just get out and do something different.”

Hertfordshire itself has an “old English” feel with many newer amenities. It has shopping centers and restaurants that are easily accessible to residents. Hertfordshire is also near many other interesting towns and cities. London is just a 30 minute train ride away!

Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships

Exchange programs are affordable study abroad options that allow students to pay UW-W tuition while studying abroad.  As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program.  Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, as well as UW-W and external study abroad scholarships that are available.
UW-W tuition, as well as the Global Experiences Application Fee and CISI international insurance, are billed to the student’s UW-W account.  Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. living expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).
