Study Abroad offers the chance to spend time studying at a partner institution in another country taking credit-bearing modules linked to your degree. You can spend time at a European partner via Erasmus+ or go further afield to places such as Australia, USA and Asia. Find out where you can go.
What are the benefits?
Study Abroad is not just an academic experience. It’s also about gaining new skills, developing your independence and becoming a global citizen.
Students who participate in study abroad are more likely to be in further education or employment 6 months after graduating and students who spend part of their degree abroad are more likely to graduate with a 2:1 or First Class degree (Higher Education Funding Council for England).
If you wish to sample the Study Abroad experience but who may not want to complete an entire semester away can still do so by participating in a Summer School at one of the Management School’s partner institutions Summer Schools take place from one to six weeks, depending on the location, usually in the summer break between years one and two or between years two and three. Courses undertaken during a Summer School are non-credit bearing and therefore do not count towards your degree.
Year in China
Do you want to have a unique experience and add a new dimension to your degree? Then the Year in China* may be for you.
The Year in China is the University's exciting new flagship programme which allows you to extend your undergraduate programme to four years and graduate with a degree title that includes ‘With a Year in China’.
You will spend a year between your second and final years of study at Xi’an Jiatong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) in Suzhou, China where you will undertake courses offered as part of their BA China Studies programme. All courses are taught and assessed in English, but you’ll have the opportunity to learn Modern Chinese as part of your studies, and choose from courses including Doing Business in China, China: the Digital Revolution, Communication in China and Chinese Cinema.
You can find more information on the University's Year in China webpages.
The most rewarding element of the course has been the opportunity to study abroad in China. The University of Liverpool has given me experience of living, studying and travelling in a country which is an upcoming economic superpower. Not only will it help with future employment, but it has been a thoroughly enjoyable and enriching time, which I will never forget.
