Do any UK Universities have a year abroad at Harvard/Stanford/Princeton/MIT?

Just wondering, because I can't seem to find any...I'm particularly interested for physics/natural sciences

I think Warwick has a year abroad to go to UChicago if that helps? :smile:
I don't think other Unis offer that opportunity.
Cambridge do a year in MIT

There are definitely no exchange programs with Harvard and Princeton - not sure about Stanford. Maybe Imperial does something with Stanford but I doubt it. MIT and Cambridge do collaborate, yes.

Do you know of any other UK universities that do a similar thing in the summer (at Harvard, Stanford,Princeton,MIT,Yale etc)?

Oxbridge will be the only ones, our other universities aren't well known enough to compete with the top US universities you've mentioned.

Imperial has exchange links with Columbia, Carnegie Mellon (ChemEng) and MIT (Material).

I heard that UCL has links with UChicago (Econ). CalTech and UPenn, can't remember which subject

Pretty sure LSE has exchange links with Columbia
Stanford Mathmos can do exchange trips with both Japan (Kyoto) and France (Paris) in one course ie do both.
