International Development

Study abroad

You can study at a choice of over 100 universities in Europe, Asia, Australia and Latin America and more than 40 universities in North America.

Why study abroad?


You'll develop your language skills, and enhance your team-working abilities. This means the extra skills you learn will help you stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs.

Learn about different cultures

By studying abroad, you develop skills in communicating and negotiating. Intercultural competence is increasingly recognised as an important attribute and is recognised by many employers.

Network of friends and contacts

You will meet people not only from the country you are visiting, but from all over the world. This means you'll build up a network of international contacts.
