Explore other cultures, challenge yourself and gather experiences which will help with your career.

Aberystwyth University offers you the opportunity of a lifetime to study, volunteer or work in another country, for an academic year, a single semester or a few weeks during your holidays.

Studying at one of our partner universities can offer you a new perspective on your subject and the opportunity to deepen and supplement your studies at Aberystwyth. Time spent exploring a new culture can also sharpen your interpersonal and communication skills, improve your language ability, and broaden your international mindset.

Here in the Department of International Politics, we strongly encourages students to consider applying to study abroad at a carefully selected university for either one semester or a full academic year.

In fact, we think this is so useful to students studying international politics that you can now incorporate a year of study abroad in the BA International Relations degree. Credits earned from modules studied at your exchange institution will count towards your degree.
