Study abroad

Study abroad

Studying abroad is a great way to boost your confidence, broaden your outlook and stand out to future employers. All of our courses give 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.

All of our courses allow you the opportunity to study abroad in one of our partner institutions.

If you choose to spend a year abroad during one of our BSc programmes it will increase the length of your degree by a year – you would leave for an extra year after the 2nd year of your study and return to Leeds to complete the final year of your degree.

Our MPhys Physics, MPhys Theoretical Physics and MPhys Physics with Astrophysics programmes give you the option of taking an integrated study abroad year.This will involve you spending the third year of your course at one of our specially selected partner universities overseas. You’ll study modules similar to those taught at Leeds. This means your year abroad will be incorporated within your course and you won’t have to extend the length of your degree.We have partner institutions in Australasia, Asia, North America and Europe’.


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.
