Studying abroad‌‌‌

Take the leap and stand out to employers

Studying abroad is an exciting and challenging opportunity that will help you stand out to employers and flourish as a global leader and citizen in the 21st century.

The experience of living and studying in another culture will help you build confidence, broaden your horizons, and develop intercultural skills which are highly prized by employers.

How does it work?

All undergraduate students have the opportunity to spend time studying abroad at one of our partner institutions in Europe, North and South America, East Asia and Australia.

Instead of doing a one-year professional placement, you can choose to do any of the following:

  • One-year study abroad (either at one partner university for 12 months or study at two different partner universities for six months each)
  • Six-months study abroad and six-months placement (in the UK or abroad)

Those studying BSc International Business have the additional option to study abroad during semester two of year two instead of taught modules at Loughborough, whether or not they study abroad in Year Three.

For students unable to spend a whole semester or year abroad, there are an increasing number of short, intensive summer schools available at a number of leading overseas institutions.
