For the two exchange programmes: Non-European Exchange and European Exchange:
From Canada, Czechia to China, the European Exchange and Non-European Exchange programmes offers study placements across the world.
You do not have to speak a foreign language to take a year abroad. Almost all Non-European Exchange partners and many European Exchange universities teach in English. However, some universities will teach in the language of that country. The languages requirements for each university is listed on the Where Can I Go? partner pages. The Go Languages page gives further details about language requirements and support, along with the opportunities that the Centre for Foreign Language Study gives to students to learn a language alongside their degree.
Students are able to do a 'Placement Year' (as opposed to a Year Abroad) in the UK or overseas. The Careers Office have specific Placement Officers based in each faculty that can help you organise a work placement
The University will bid to the UK Government Turing funding scheme to support study abroad placements in all locations in 2023/24, however, the Turing funding call has not opened and we cannot guarantee full funding from Turing. Within the Turing [funding] Scheme, priority is given to Widening Participation. Please note: Turing is a funding scheme, not an exchange programme.
Please visit the Turing page for more information.
Think beyond university! The world is an increasingly global market- your time abroad will allow you to equip yourself with a range of skills which will make you more employable. But if Study Abroad is not for you, check out our other Global Opportunities that could give your CV the edge.
