Study abroad


All undergraduate courses in our school offer you the opportunity to study abroad for a year as part of your degree. Spending time studying abroad can be a rewarding and life-changing experience, giving you a unique opportunity to discover different cultures and enhance your career prospects. 

The University of Leeds offers more than 300 partnerships with universities worldwide. Taking a study abroad year will extend your degree to four years.

In addition, we have department-specific partnerships with some universities in Europe.

You'll be fully supported throughout the year abroad process from preparation, during your time overseas and your return to the UK.

A year abroad is highly regarded by employers as it demonstrates personal resilience, independence and cultural awareness.
