A year abroad is exciting and challenging, both academically and socially. It gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the cultural, political and social life of another country, and to learn more about another society than you ever could by staying at home.
Most Lancaster undergraduate students have the opportunity to go abroad to study as part of their degree usually for a year at one of our partners. However, some departments now have a one term study abroad option.
In most cases, your period overseas does not extend the length of your degree programme; the modules count towards your degree.
Over the past 40 years, hundreds of Lancaster students have taken the opportunity to study abroad as part of their degree in North America, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Europe (through the Erasmus Programme).
The International Office holds a series of workshops and drop-in sessions to help guide you through the study abroad application process.
