Studying abroad offers a unique opportunity to explore and experience a different part of the world, and to expand your education within, and beyond, Geography. Through Durham University’s Overseas Exchange Programme, our geography students can study at partner institutions around the world, from North and South America, to Asia, Europe, and Australasia.
We have partnered with world-leading Geography departments to offer students opportunities to further their education in diverse and internationally-excellent settings. Studying abroad offers a chance to develop employability skills and experience, and is a valuable means to explore new ideas, perspectives, and issues. Here’s what two of our students say about their time studying abroad:
Through Study Abroad, students undertake a year overseas between their second and third year, build research experience, and take diverse courses selected to develop geographical knowledge and expertise. Students are supported throughout the year by both the International Office and the Geography Department’s Exchange Coordinator.
Study Abroad is a competitive, university-wide scheme, run through the International Office. A full list of our partner institutions is available through the International Office pages, along with additional information for outgoing and incoming students.
