Study abroad

Studying abroad is an exciting and challenging opportunity to experience another culture as part of your degree

The School of Design and Creative Arts is a dynamic and thriving international community. We encourage our students to gain the skills and competencies needed to flourish both at home and overseas in a rapidly advancing global environment.

A period of study or work abroad is an exciting and challenging opportunity to experience living and studying in another culture as part of your degree. It will enable you to gain confidence, broaden your horizons, and develop skills and experiences, which employers increasingly value, giving your degree an international edge.

Studying abroad offers the opportunity to gain a Diploma in International Studies (DIntS) alongside your degree; this is an additional award to the final qualification you will receive once you have successfully completed this course. It's also a brilliant way to make new friends and connections, improve language skills, gain a global outlook and make fantastic memories. There are a range of International University-wide institutions which you can apply to, as well as a selection of opportunities to study on exchanges specifically for Design and Creative Arts students.
