Study Abroad as part of your Degree!

Study abroad allows you to undertake part of your Undergraduate degree outside of the UK at one of our Partner Institutions,  through the International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP) or on the Study USA programme.

There are options for you to undertake a Semester or Placement year via our Partner Institutions and the ISEP programme. We advise you seek approval from your Academic advisor as to which options are applicable to your degree.

If you undertake a placement year your time abroad will be recognised in your degree title and you will receive the Diploma in International Academic Study (DIAS) as an additional attainment.

Destinations for you to study abroad include Europe, USA, Asia and beyond!

If a semester or placement year is not an option for you, there are many other short term and volunteering  options you could consider!
