Study abroad for outgoing students

Study Abroad is a student mobility programme organised internally by Edge Hill University. The programme allows students to study at universities across the globe that we have an exchange partnership with. We currently have several partners in various subject areas. Read on for all the information you need to take part in the Study Abroad programme.

Why go on an exchange?

There are a number of reasons why students go on exchange. This includes:

  • the experience of living and studying in another country
  • the opportunity to learn another language
  • the opportunity to enhance CVs and employability
  • the opportunity to gain new skills
  • the opportunity to meet new people
  • the chance to open up new and exciting graduate employment markets

‘Graduates who were mobile during their degrees were 1.3 times less likely to be unemployed than their non-mobile peers (3.7% compared to 4.9%).’

‘Mobile students are more likely to achieve a First Class (1st) or Upper Second Class (2.1) in their degree (81% compared to 72%).’

Where can I study?

We have numerous partnerships with universities across the world. Have a look at our Global Opportunities page to see which partners are available to your chosen subject.
