During your first year, you have the flexibility to both explore something new and deepen your existing knowledge.
Choosing a study abroad degree at Lancaster will give you the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities overseas.
A study abroad degree offers you an exciting opportunity to spend your third year studying at one of our partner universities in another country. You will be able to develop knowledge related to your major and benefit from new social and cultural experiences.
In the past our students have visited highly regarded Universities such as those below. While we cannot guarantee which partner you might be able to visit, we make every effort to match students to a destination with approved, subject-specific modules. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard 3-year degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.

I decided to do a year abroad in Australia because I had always wanted to live abroad and the opportunity to do it while studying seemed perfect. I learned a lot during my visit - about being independent, about Australian history and culture, and about how celebrity adverts in Australian media are completely different from what we see in the UK. Now that I’m back, these different cultural experiences have been really helpful in my seminars and coursework. The study abroad teams I worked with were just the best people to contact and were really helpful if there was any confusion with modules.
