Opportunity awaits

Whatever you want to achieve, studying, working or volunteering abroad will give you the skills, knowledge and experience to make a difference to your future!

BCU students can apply to study abroad at one of our partner universities worldwide as part of their degree. Don’t forget to check out our summer programmes which can be taken outside of your degree!

Students registered at one of our partner universities can choose to study with us at Birmingham City University through our Study Abroad programme. Spending one or two semesters studying with us may allow you to transfer the credit you earn back to your home university.

Employable at heart

More and more employers now actively seek students with international experience of studying abroad. Having a new perspective on different cultures, language skills and a willingness to try new things will certainly enhance your CV!

Global at heart

Spending time abroad gives you the opportunity to travel and see the world. You will not only experience a new country, its food, customs and traditions, but will also have the chance to travel through other parts of the world while you’re away!

Unique at heart

Studying abroad as part of your degree will demonstrate you are open-minded, independent and can adapt to new surroundings, as well as give you the chance to learn a new language. ¡Qué bien!

Friends at heart

One of the best things about gaining international experience is all of the friends you will make whilst you’re there! Going through this experience with others in the same position as you will create a unique bond and give you the opportunity to visit them again all over the world in the future!
