Study Abroad

Enhance your studies, boost your self-confidence and immerse yourself in the culture of another country as part of our exciting opportunities to study overseas. 

If you choose one of our Study Abroad courses, you will have the opportunity to spend your second year of your degree at one of our partner universities. Which university you choose to study at is entirely up to you, although places are subject to availability. You have the choice to study in the USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand. If you don’t wish to spend an entire year away from Lancaster, you could also take advantage of a shorter 3-month placement in Europe through the Erasmus exchange programme.

  • Experience life and culture in another country
  • Enhance your job prospects and stand out from the crown
  • Study different natural and man-made environments
  • Take advantage of opportunities to travel

During your time at Lancaster, you will study the same modules as those who have not opted to study abroad, ensuring you receive the very best education in the biosciences, whilst also giving you the fantastic opportunity to spend a year living and studying in another country.

Student support

Studying on the other side of the world can be a daunting prospect, and it is important to us that we help you make informed decisions about where to study and provide support whilst you are abroad so that you greatly benefit from the experience. In addition to having a dedicated advisor, who will help you decide where to go and what to study, you’ll also have the opportunity to network with students who have previously studied abroad and who are able to provide you with a wealth of practical tips. Additionally, our International Office is on hand to help you with application forms and the financial and legal aspects of studying abroad.
