International Philosophy

International Opportunities for Students 

We provide our students with a range of opportunities to have international experiences during their degree, and every year we welcome new students 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 employment market after graduation. 

We support our students in gaining these invaluable skills. Our Global Opportunities provide students with the chance to study at a partner institution in another country, attend international summer schools, or participate in an internship abroad. There is also the opportunity to work or volunteer abroad, which is a great way to gain new experiences and become more employable.  

Where Can I Go? 

Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, the US… the choice is yours! Take a look at the map below to see our partner Universities around the world. 

Please note that availability varies with your degree programme and year of study. For full details about the range of opportunities use the Global Opportunities Search Tool. 

Study With Us 

Every year we welcome students from our partner institutions around the world. You can study with us over the course of a semester or full academic year, conduct a research project in collaboration with our staff or participate in our summer schools.  

Whether you are studying with us for one or two semesters, you will have access to a vast array of choices. Some modules have pre-requisites or require specific knowledge or experience that you will have to demonstrate before you can register. If you have any questions about your suitability for a particular module, get in touch with Robin McKenna, the Global Opportunities Advisor for Philosophy. 

New Partnerships 

We are always looking for new international partners. Contact Robin McKenna if you would like to discuss a new collaboration.
