Do you want to study abroad?

At the University of Liverpool, 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, we offer a great range of life changing study abroad opportunities for students to experience during their undergraduate studies with us.

Why study abroad? 

Reports from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) tell us that students who participate in study abroad:

  • Are more likely to be in further education or employment 6 months after graduating
  • Earn higher than average salaries
  • Are more likely to graduate with a 2:1 or First Class degree

Studies of UK and European businesses show that the UK's top employers think that Study Abroad makes graduates more employable, whilst European businesses with international links are looking for graduates who have had some form of international experience.

There are also the academic and personal benefits to Study Abroad:

  • Improved study techniques
  • Increased self-awareness & self-reliance
  • Inspires their future career or study choices

The importance of studying abroad was reiterated at this year’s European University Association (EUA) by Professor Dame Janet Beer, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Liverpool, who told the conference that going abroad to study was a life-changing experience for students, contributing to their maturity and personal and intellectual capacity.
