Exchange and Visiting Students

LHU has partner universities on every major continent. LHU welcomes exchange and visiting students to study for a semester or year on our campus. Exchange and visiting students must apply to their own university for study at LHU.

If your university is not a partner of LHU, the CGE Study Abroad program enables students from around the world to study at LHU as part of their home degree where an exchange agreement is not in place. Students can choose from a range of different subject areas and LHU tuition fees are applicable.
