International links

Our academics are involved in collaborations with many universities and research centres across the world. Cohesion across the EU is growing and an increasing number of people are choosing to live and work in EU countries other than their own. In addition, many companies now require their employees to liaise and converse with colleagues across the world and the Socrates programme helps to ensure that our students can operate effectively in an international arena.

Visiting students

The presence of students from other EU countries in our Division brings academic benefits, through, for example, contributions to class discussions, and more generally by helping to sustain a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere.

We have exchange programmes in place with a number of overseas universities.

We also welcome a number of overseas students to Southampton every year as a part of these exchange schemes.
