Study abroad for outgoing students

Study Abroad is a student mobility programme organised internally by Edge Hill University, which allows students to study at Universities across the globe that we have an exchange partnership with during their degree programme. We currently have several partners across the globe in many different subject areas. In this section you will find all the essential 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 some common reasons are:

  • The experience of living and studying in another country
  • To learn another language
  • To enhance their CV and employability
  • To gain new skills
  • To meet new people
  • Opens 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%).’
