Valuable learning doesn't merely take place inside a lecture theatre. Our students are encouraged to travel, discover, and broaden their horizons during their time with us.
”Study Abroad is a tremendous, interdisciplinary experience for students. They come back more knowledgeable, experienced and confident. It offers many intellectual, as well as personal benefits, and is highly attractive for employers.”
You can choose to study abroad as part of your degree, providing a unique way to enhance your studies and boost future career prospects. Not only does travel open your eyes to news areas of history, it also builds confidence, skills and life experience.
Study trip abroad
For those who don't want to go abroad for a prolonged period of time during their degree, there is an opportunity to travel to a European city for an in-depth historical study project. Led by one of our leading academics, your week abroad will allow you to learn about their research in relation to the location.
Our students have studied history at a wide range of partner universities across the world. Read about the best bits of their travels and why they recommend Study Abroad:
