    Immerse yourself in new cultures and experiences as you study

Study abroad

Explore another corner of the world, immerse yourself in a different culture, experience unforgettable moments, and enhance your studies at the same time.

"Students find that studying abroad helps enormously with improving their independence, confidence and time-management skills. It gives students the experience of working under a different educational system, and they get to meet people from all over the world, many of whom they keep in contact with after they return and with whom they become life-long friends. All those who go consider it to have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Professor John Preston

Lecturer in Philosophy and Study Abroad Coordinator

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 new areas of your subject, it also builds confidence, skills and life experience.

Student experiences

Our students study philosophy at a wide range of partner universities across the world. Read Stephanie's story to learn more about the best bits of her travel and why she recommends Study Abroad:


”For me, Study Abroad was a great experience as I became more confident and made friends from all over the world. Whilst in Australia, I enjoyed the culture and travelling around the country finding hidden gems, including an East Coast trip Koalafrom Sydney up to Cairns – my favourite part was holding a koala, my spirit animal!"
