Study Abroad

Our Study Abroad programme gives you the opportunity to experience a new culture and way of life. You will learn more about another society than you ever could by staying at home. and develop a greater sense of independence and confidence.

Our MChem Study Abroad scheme means that you get to spend the third or fourth year of your degree abroad. You could study at universities in:

  • North America
  • Australia
  • New Zealand

Partnerships with universities in France, Germany and the Netherlands are currently in development. The modules that you study will count towards your degree. You may also have the opportunity to take chemistry modules that are unavailable in Lancaster’s degree schemes.‌
