Student Exchange


The University of South Carolina-University of Warwick Exchange has been in continuous existence since 1966. It is the oldest and one of the most prestigious exchange programs at the University of South Carolina, and over 120 USC history students have studied at the University of Warwick. Warwick Scholars benefit from a year abroad at one of the UK's top-ranked History departments. They return to USC with heightened academic skills and an appreciation of what it is like to live and work in a different culture.

Every year, USC's Department of History sends history majors, minors, and cognates to the University of Warwick for an academic year or a semester stay.  Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors are all eligible to participate.  Students return to USC with thirty (academic-year students) or fifteen (semester students) hours of credit.  While final grades are reported to USC, only the credit hours are entered on the student's transcript, thus protecting the USC grade point average.

Sherman F. Smith, Jr. Memorial Scholarships support USC students who study at Warwick with grants up to $1,500 for semester students and $4,500 for academic-year students.  In addition, students can use their scholarships and loans for the exchange.  Students selected for the exchange pay their regular tuition fees to USC, plus a housing charge to Warwick.

Interested students should contact Dr. Carol Harrison (, Dr. Thomas Lekan (, Dr. David Snyder (, or the Undergraduate Student Advisor, Tyler Mcnamara (
