Why go abroad?

Studying abroad gives you access to a whole range of new experiences. See the world, further your career prospects, and increase your earning potential.

You'll also get the opportunity to:

  • meet new people
  • build networks of friends and practitioners
  • learn a new language.

Develop your personal and people skills required in the global workplace, including:

  • intercultural communication and language skills
  • adaptability and tolerance
  • resilience and independence
  • problem solving
  • confidence and leadership skills.

Students who study or work abroad during their studies are more likely to:

  • achieve a first-class or upper second-class degree
  • be in a graduate level job or further study
  • have stronger employability and transferable skills, and earn more.

Our employability and volunteering teams can help you get work experience or volunteer in another country.

  2. Talk to your exchange coordinator or course leader
  3. Apply for your study exchange
  4. Apply for a funding grant or scholarship

  6. Budget for your trip

What our students say

I'd recommend studying abroad to my friends. It's an amazing opportunity to take advantage of while studying at NTU.

Fenniecia Smith

I met so many people from different backgrounds and cultures from all over the world. People I wouldn't normally mix with, I became really good friends with.
