Overseas opportunities

Studying or working abroad can be a life changing opportunity that lets you gain new skills, meet new people and experience different cultures.

We offer lots of ways to go abroad for both staff and students. You can choose to study abroad as part of a University-wide exchange programme. This includes the chance to study in countries such as Brazil and the USA. If you choose to study or work abroad with Erasmus + you'll benefit from a grant that will cover part of the costs during your stay. We also welcome students and staff to visit our university.

Trips and visits

As a BA (Hons) Visual Communication student you will have the opportunity to take part in a number of overseas trips and visits as part of your course.

For example, a trip to Thailand's prestigious Chulalongkorn University, in Bangkok, became a reality for some of our second year students.

Talking about the refreshing and exotic new environment, Sian Rowley said: “Apart from the project work, we were able to travel in the last week….we trekked through the jungle, stayed with a tribe and rode elephants.”
