Studying Abroad

St Peter's Basilica in Rome

Aberystwyth University offers you an exciting range of options to go overseas as part of your degree: from short courses and volunteering opportunities in the summer, to a full semester or year abroad studying your chosen subject at one of our partner universities.

The Department of Geography and Earth Sciences offers a number of courses which include an integrated year studying abroad, enabling you to study at one of our European or international partner universities during your third year, returning to Aberystwyth for your final year and graduation.

If you are studying a degree with an integrated industrial year, you can choose to spend some or all of your industrial year abroad to complete your placement.

Reports have shown that students who study abroad are more attractive to employers and earn more than their peers. Time spent exploring a new culture can enhance your interpersonal and communication skills, improve your language ability, and broaden your international mindset. Why not take advantage of the opportunity of a lifetime while improving your critical skills by choosing to study abroad.
