UG Year Abroad

Spend a year studying abroad

All of our undergraduate degrees offer you the opportunity to spend an extra year of study or work abroad. This is offered during your third year of study with us and can be spent at one of our wide range of European or international partner universities. If you’re opting for Europe then you could choose a year’s work placement rather than a study experience.

You can choose between placements where you will be taught either in English or in the native language. Our Foreign Language Centre offers optional language modules to all students, whatever your level. If you are a linguist, then why not combine advanced study in your language, or a new language such as Japanese or Chinese, with an outstanding student experience on one of our leading business programmes?

We currently offer placements in 44 universities in Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the USA.

Why study abroad?

Have you thought about how your degree is preparing you for the international opportunities and challenges you will encounter after graduation? You are already working with fellow students from all over the world, learning how to utilise each other’s strengths, solve problems and develop cross-cultural communication skills. International experience has always been seen as a positive way to enhance your CV, but employers are beginning to expect that graduates will be prepared to work sensitively and effectively in international teams. Being open-minded to global opportunities can really open doors.

Understanding the global economy is an essential part of good business practice in today’s multi-cultural world. Living, working and studying abroad can also give you a whole new perspective on the world and on global opportunities. If you’ve studied or worked abroad and have additional language skills and cultural understanding your career credentials will be greatly enhanced.

Through our partnerships with some of the world’s best business schools, the School offers a range of opportunities to gain the international experience, intercultural and communication skills you need to prepare you thoroughly for an international business environment.
