Study Abroad

For over 25 years Lancaster University has operated a successful exchange scheme with universities in the USA and Canada, and more recently with universities in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

The year abroad is not an add-on to your degree, it is fully integrated so that you can complete your BSc in just three years. Or if you prefer a shorter period, why not spend three months in Europe on an Erasmus exchange?

Why study abroad?

  • Gain experience of life and culture in another country
  • Benefit from a wider range of teaching and research expertise
  • Study different natural and man-made environments
  • Enhance your job prospects – stand out from the crowd!
  • Take advantage of opportunities to go travelling, skiing, scuba-diving…

What opportunities are available?

You could study for a full year in North America, Australasia or Iceland as part of your degree, or spend 3 months in mainland Europe on an Erasmus exchange.
