The University encourages students to consider study and work abroad opportunities as a way of developing global perspectives and cross-cultural capabilities in their day to day lives and practice.  

Why Study Abroad:

  • Stand out from the crowd (less than 5% of UK students do it!)
  • Get a grant to help with your living expenses! That's free money! 
  • Boost your self-confidence, independence and ambition
  • Discover a different culture and gain an international perspective
  • Discover new strengths and abilities and enhance your CV
  • Develop your language skills
  • Gain an international network of friends
  • Travel the world and have fun while you do!

Next steps:

•    Start planning and preparing in your first year.


•    Research our partner institutions, both European and Worldwide


•    Speak to your Course Leader about your plans and secure their approval.


•    Complete the relevant application form and return to the International Team.


•   If you are successful, you be invited to complete your chosen partner institution application form.

•    Attend a pre-departure briefing then away you go!
