Study or work abroad
Loughborough University actively encourages students to gain an international experience.
Students can undertake a study exchange or a work placement outside of the UK. In both cases, the opportunity to gain insight into another culture, broaden experience and development both intellectual and personal maturity is invaluable.
Loughborough University has a number of partner universities in European and international locations. Students might spend one semester at their chosen location or a full academic year, depending on what their degree course at Loughborough can accommodate. The majority of our partner universities offer modules taught in English, so language skills need not be a barrier to going on a study exchange.
Some students prefer to take up the opportunity to work abroad rather than undertake a study exchange. Again, this can be done in a variety of European or international locations. Students might spend one semester or a full academic year on work placement, depending on what their degree course at Loughborough can accommodate.
Following the recent announcement that the UK will not be participating in the Erasmus+ programme, the Government will be introducing a new scheme (named after Alan Turing) to support students who plan to study or work abroad. More information can be found here, and we will circulate further details once these are known.
