Do you want to see the world, experience different cultures and enhance your career prospects while doing so?
At UCLan, you can. Our international exchange programmes give you the opportunity to study or work across the globe within Europe or further afield.
I was lucky enough to visit Ruiykan in Norway where I not only learnt how to ice climb, which was a brand new experience for me, but to also gain different understandings of the Norwegian culture/lifestyle to coaching styles which will aid the theoretical side of my degree at UCLan. The programme was also loads of fun!

This could see you studying at UCLan Cyprus as part of your degree, or at one of our 67 European partners, in 19 countries, through the ERASMUS+ scheme. Alternatively, you can study further afield, as far as Australia, China, Canada, India, or the USA, as an exchange student with one of our world-wide partner institutions, for a semester or a year
You’ll be assessed in similar ways whilst abroad as you are at UCLan. Study undertaken and passed abroad will be credited to your UCLan degree. Therefore, a year abroad or semester abroad will not result in extending the length of time it takes to complete your degree.
Looking back at my time in Japan, it has made me grateful for the opportunities in life that put you somewhere unexpected to enable yourself to sharpen your natural senses. And with that, I thank the study abroad team for helping me along the way with my procedure."

It’s not all beaches, sunsets and Instagram opportunities! Studying abroad will have lifelong benefits in your personal and professional life.
There’s lots of help and advice from the Study Abroad team so you won’t be alone. You’ll usually study abroad during your 2nd year, so will need to think about it and apply during your first year.
