Study abroad

All of our undergraduate courses offer an optional study abroad year, which will extend your degree to four years. You will usually take your study abroad year after successfully completing your second year. 

You will have the chance to discover a new culture, develop your knowledge and skills, learn or improve a language, and make yourself stand out from your peers in the job market.

You can either study at a university that has been selected by the School or take part in the University study abroad programme.

Opportunities provided by the School

You may decide on a specific philosophy exchange or theology and religious studies exchange. The School has links with universities in Denmark, France, Italy, Greece, the Czech Republic and Spain – language classes are available before you go to prepare you for the experience. 

University opportunities

The University offers one of the widest ranges of study abroad opportunities in the UK with more than 400 partnerships with universities worldwide. Popular destinations include:

  • Canada
  • USA
  • New Zealand
  • Australia

Other options for study abroad include subsidised and non-subsidised summer schools, which offer the opportunity to experience study and life in another country as part of your degree.
