Exchange opportunities

Study visits

If you are on a degree programme that is entirely UK-based, it may still be possible to study abroad by arranging your own year out at a recognised university. Your degree transcript will acknowledge this, although credits gained will not count towards your degree result.

Study visits can be arranged through our exchange programme. We have links with a number of relevant universities and can provide language preparation before you go. Although the overseas section of the programme is taught in English, there will still be plenty of opportunities to improve your language skills.

Studying abroad can give you valuable experience of living and working in a different country, helping you to develop independence, confidence and self-assurance.

It is best to express your interest in our exchange programme as early as possible so that you can plan your exchange placement. This will give you time to prepare the practicalities of your time abroad, to consider which courses you should take and to ensure that adequate language training can be arranged where required prior to your placement.

You should discuss your plans with your Tutor and the School's Exchange Programme Coordinator.
