Broaden your horizons by spending a year studying in North America, Australia or New Zealand. Your studies abroad count towards your final degree classification and so you take modules which fit into Lancaster’s scheme of study.

Students benefit greatly from their experiences abroad and often find it life changing. You will grow in confidence and become more mature and independent. It’s a great opportunity to broaden your horizons and develop an understanding of different cultures and values.

An overseas experience can add a distinctive element to your CV. Employers may be looking for graduates who demonstrate flexibility and have a richer outlook on life.

Heather Guy says "my year in Vancouver has been the highlight of my degree. I took courses I wouldn’t have been able to take at home, knowing I had support from Lancaster when I needed it. Highlights of my year abroad included spectacular hiking and back-country skiing, travelling to the Rocky mountains, the Yukon and Alaska."
