International Opportunities for Lancaster students
So you want to study abroad? Welcome to a great adventure!
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 courses 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 hold a series of workshops and drop-in sessions to help guide you through the study abroad application process.
If you are interested in a shorter experience, then a Vacation Travel programme may be for you. You can go abroad for three weeks in September to China, Berlin, India or Malaysia with other Lancaster University students.
Each trip offers a varied and exciting itinerary, giving you both a practical and academic insight into the rich and diverse culture of that country.
