International Study Opportunities

Exchange programmes facilitate international mobility and provide the opportunity for students to participate in a period of study in another country as part of their Higher Education.

As well as university-wide partnership agreements the School of Arts and Social Sciences have developed rewarding partnerships with other arts and social science departments in high profile institutions from around the world, from France and Denmark to the US, Hong Kong and Australia.
