Study or work abroad

Student exchanges in Europe and the US

An international experience can help develop your self-confidence, adaptability and cultural awareness, giving you the edge when it comes to employability. Plus you’ll have exciting and memorable experiences, meet new people and learn new skills.

Miles went to study abroad at Southern Connecticut State University and this is what he says:

“My time studying abroad was a great success. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to experience a different university culture and partake in classes which have helped inspire my own research interests. I also feel very lucky that I was able to visit amazing places such as New York and California”.

Thinking of studying abroad

Please discuss your options with your International Mobility Coordinator and/or Programme Leader, please see the contact list at the bottom of this page.

Most students can choose to either go to Europe through the Erasmus+ scheme or to our partner in the US: Southern Connecticut State University. Where and when you can go will depend on your programme of study. There will be funding available to help you with the added costs of studying abroad for either option. Please email for more information on funding.
