What you need to know
You can study abroad in a variety of different countries, depending on your course. The study abroad element usually happens in your second year, but this will depend on where you are going. Most students go for one semester, but some courses offer a full year. Whichever option you choose your study whilst away counts towards your degree, so you won’t add extra time to your course.
Your application will be assessed using your academic marks and your personal statement. Your School will need to give their approval. Places are limited. Once you have been assessed you will also need to apply to your host university, deadlines for each institution vary. Help will be available once you have been accepted. You will also be advised about whether you need a Visa if you are studying outside of the European Union (or Norway).
