We encourage our students to spend time studying abroad, and are happy to welcome students from our partner universities to join us here at Cumbria.

Why study abroad?

There are many reasons to consider studying abroad for part of your degree programme, including:

  • Experience a different country and culture
  • See how your subject is taught in a different educational environment
  • Develop an international network of friends and contacts
  • Develop employability and foreign language skills
  • Have a great time!
