Study abroad & mobility

Boost your future employability, develop your skills and experience more with our study abroad and mobility opportunities

Our Psychology programmes offer you the opportunity to gain a different understanding and perspective about the subject, whilst acquiring life experiences and skills that will benefit you in the future!

Studying abroad can bring a different perspective on psychology, as well as assisting in developing networks and opportunities.

  • It is proven to help enhance your future career options and employability

  • Students who study abroad regularly perform academically better than students who do not

  • Studying abroad is an adventure, cited by most returning students as the best experience of their lives (so far)

You will receive support to guide you throughout the whole processes, and there are additional finances available to help. Within the school we have a Study Abroad Coordinator who will provide you with academic guidance and support, to help you through the full Study Abroad cycle - before, during and after.


Study abroad at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Australia, USA and Canada. You can choose to do a term or a full academic year abroad, depending on your degree.

Here from some of our students:


The university campus in Malaysia opened in 2015 and runs a BSc in Psychology within the Department of Psychology. Students are taught by leading international academic staff, and get access to excellent learning resources, as well as one-to-one teaching and support.

What is mobility?

UK based students can spend a term on this campus during the middle year of their psychology programme. Both the University of Reading and the University of Reading Malaysia deliver the same BSc Psychology programme, making the transition of learning for students easy to follow.

Why take part in mobility?

The mobility programme allows students to study in an environment where they can experience a new culture, meet new students, as well as studying on the same programme.

What our students say

"The best part is working hard all week, so you can travel on the weekend! The university is located in a great place for cheap and easy travel, so you can see the world whilst you study!"

-Shannon, UoRM mobility student, Autumn term 2016

"Choosing to study at UoRM was the best thing I've done at University- my time in Malaysia was the best part of my degree so far. Academically, the campus is a great place to learn, as the class sizes are so small that you get to know the lecturers well. The students were really welcoming of us and it was really easy to make friends because of this. The campus itself is very modern, and everything being in one place made it easy to study. But by far the best part of the experience was being able to travel so frequently- almost every weekend. From Johor Bahru we could reach Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and even Borneo easily. Seeing so much of Malaysia, sometimes with people we met at UoRM, was the most memorable part of my time in Malaysia."

-Daisy O'Connor, UoRM mobility student, Autumn term 2017
