Study Overseas

Studying overseas as part of your undergraduate degree is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a great way to enhance your studies. For most of our degrees, you have the option to spend a semester or year abroad at one of our partner universities, as part of our Outgoing Exchange Programme.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions in the UK and overseas, the University is still being cautious with the opportunity for the outgoing student international exchange programme and is constantly reviewing the situation before committing any travel. This is to ensure the continued health and safety of students, staff, collaborating partners and all their families. The University continues to prioritise minimisation of any risks to the health of students and staff in all of its decisions.  
By studying overseas, you will make friends with people from all around the world and create wonderful memories that last a lifetime. We believe that learning should be enjoyable as well as academically challenging and professionally rewarding. Studying in a different country can provide fantastic life experiences within a supportive environment and create opportunities (professionally or otherwise) which can last well beyond the period overseas.

Research from around the world also shows that studying or volunteering away from your home university can enhance your career prospects after graduation. Whilst overseas, you can gain a range of professional skills which you may not have the opportunity to experience again. You will be able to draw on your experiences and include them on your CV, which will help you stand out from your peers when it comes to applying for jobs or higher degrees.

Who can go on the Outgoing Exchange programme?

Almost all of our degrees give you the opportunity to study overseas in your second year of study, providing it isn’t going to hinder your studies and you are achieving good grades in your assessments. You have the chance to study at one of our partner universities for either a semester (January to May) or the full academic year with all academic credits counting towards your degree when you return.

Where can I go on an exchange?

We have over 20 partner universities worldwide from Hong Kong through Europe to America. Choosing which partner university you want to study at depends on where you want to go and also which university offers your specialist course.

How much will it cost?

As you are taking part in an exchange, you won’t need to pay any extra tuition fees to the partner university you are attending. You will need to cover the cost of living whilst you are abroad, but there are a number of loans and grants available to help you.

How do I find out more?

If you want to find out more about studying overseas, you can email our Exchange Team: exchange@hope.ac.uk.
