International opportunities for students
We provide our students with a range of opportunities to have international experiences during their degree, and we welcome new students every year from around the world.
Opportunities for going abroad
We believe in helping our students become global citizens with a wide-range of employability skills to help them succeed in the international and inter-cultural employment market after graduation.
To support our students in gaining these invaluable skills, our Study Abroad opportunities provide students with the opportunity to study at one of our partner institutions in another country, attending international summer schools, or participating in internships abroad. Find out if Study Abroad is right for you! There are also other international opportunities available to our students, such as working or volunteering abroad, which is a great way to gain new experiences and become more employable.

If you are studying with us for one or two semester you will have access to a vast array of choices. Nonetheless, it is important to consider that some modules have pre-requisites or require specific knowledge or experience that you will have to demonstrate before you can register. When choosing you modules, and before attempting to register, make sure that you read this guidance.
We are always looking for new international partners and creating exciting opportunities for our students. Contact Dr Eduardo Coutinho (International Opportunities) if you would like to discuss a new collaboration.
