Study abroad

University of Waterloo, Canada

Studying abroad is a great way to boost your confidence, broaden your outlook and stand out to future employers. Our Natural Sciences course gives you the opportunity to apply to spend time abroad. When you return to University after this experience, you’ll have a new perspective on life for the remainder of your course. We have over 300 partner institutions around the world, including in Australia, Europe, East Asia, the USA and Canada.

If you want to study in a country that teaches in another language, our Language Centre can provide you with advice on additional learning opportunities before you go.

You will also have opportunity to attend subsidised short programmes, usually over the summer, in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Short programmes, usually taken through summer schools, are a great chance to experience study and life in another country without taking a full year out. Find out more about short programmes.

Studying abroad is popular so places for placement opportunities in some countries might be limited. Destinations may change each year; when you’re ready to apply our Study Abroad team is on hand to help you to research which placement is best suited to you. Further information on the impact of Brexit can be found here.
