Ranked one of the top 100 universities in the world under 50 years old, the University of Hertfordshire has a student population of 25,000, including nearly 3,000 international students from 120 different countries. UH offers semester and year exchange options with a wide range of courses to choose from, as well as an attractive, safe campus that provides a real home away from home. Located in small-town Hatfield, UH is located in a prime location for access to London and beyond: it’s just a half-hour train ride away from central London and within easy reach of London’s international airports.


Exchange students can choose courses from across the University of Hertfordshire’s curriculum, including business, arts, communication, psychology, and a variety of fields within the humanities and sciences.  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. Most courses at UH are 15 UK credits, which is equivalent to 4 US credits. Students will take 3-4 courses per semester for a total of 45-60 UK credits (12-16 UW-W credits).

The list of courses offered to exchange students at the University of Hertfordshire can be found in the attachments below.  When searching for courses, please note:
  • A means fall semester
  • B means spring semester
  • A/B means that the course is offered in both fall and spring semesters
  • AB means that the course lasts all year and can only be taken by full-year exchange students 
The course levels 4, 5, and 6 (the first digit of the course code) indicate the level of the course, similar to 100-level, 200-level, etc. at UW-Whitewater.

2016-2017 Course Offerings: Course descriptions can be found in the University of Hertfordshire's course catalog. However, please note that not every course in the course catalog is offered every semester, and not every course in the course catalog is available to exchange students - please refer only to the course lists above to find out if a course is available to exchange students and offered in a particular semester.

Accommodation and Meals:

Exchange students at the University of Hertfordshire are encouraged to live in on-campus housing. Accommodation is available on both of UH’s campuses, the College Lane campus and the de Havilland campus, which are a 20-minute walk from each other and connected by a free university shuttle service offered every 10 minutes daily. A variety of room types are available, including single and double rooms, private and shared bathrooms, and traditional or apartment-style residence halls. Students will apply for housing on the UH Accommodation webpage after being officially accepted by UH and receiving their UH student ID number. Full information on accommodation at UH is available at Students may choose to purchase a “bedding pack” from UH or bring or purchase their own bedding.

UH does not have pre-paid “meal plans.” Shared kitchen facilities are available in all on-campus accommodation, and students may also choose to dine in on-campus cafeterias (on a pay-as-you-go basis) or off-campus eateries. 


Student Life and Surroundings:
The University of Hertfordshire has an active campus life, including over 50 clubs and societies for students to get involved in. UH also boasts some of the best sports and fitness facilities in the country. The Students' Union on the College Lane campus is the hub of university life, with regular live music and events throughout the year.

The University of Hertfordshire is located in Hatfield, a town of 30,000 in the county of Hertfordshire. There are a number of shops, restaurants, and supermarkets in Hatfield, which are accessible on foot, by bus, or by taxi from the UH campus. Nearby St. Albans, accessible from Hatfield by bus, boasts a historic city center with charming shops and eateries, as well as the historic St. Albans Cathedral, a 15th century clock tower, and the ruins of Roman city walls in its Verulamium Park.

Hatfield is located just 20 miles north of London, and a 22-minute train service connects Hatfield Station to Kings Cross Station in London.

Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships:

Exchange programs operate on a tuition-exchange basis, allowing UW-Whitewater students to pay UW-W tuition rates while studying abroad.  Other expenses vary according to the cost of living in the host country. 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.

Tuition, CGE Administrative Fees and CISI insurance are billed through UW-Whitewater. Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. flights, personal expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).
