Study Abroad

A number of our degree programmes offer the opportunity to spend a year abroad studying at one of Lancaster’s partner institutions.

We are currently able to offer you the opportunity to study in the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Our partner universities have been carefully selected to ensure that the course content of your third year complements the rest of your degree programme. You will study modules that are closely linked to third-year modules taught at Lancaster. However, you will also have the opportunity to study additional specialist modules offered by our partner universities. The modules that you study during your year abroad will count towards your overall degree qualification.

We have a dedicated Study Abroad Director in our Department and you will be well supported throughout the process to ensure that you have the best possible experience.

A year abroad will highlight to potential employers that you are flexible, adaptable and independent. You will also demonstrate cultural awareness and the ability to work with people from a variety of backgrounds.

This video shows you some of the places you could visit as part of the Study Abroad programme. It features photos and videos taken by our students on their international placements.
