Study abroad

We offer the opportunity to study abroad for most of our degree programmes through our international partnerships.

Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to consider fresh perspectives on your studies and the wider world. You will develop an enhanced range of transferable skills such as adaptability, time management, problem-solving and intercultural communication.

You may have the chance to brush up your language skills, or even learn a new foreign language. Meeting people from diverse backgrounds, you will form friendships and networks that can last for a lifetime.

Do it! It was hands-down the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I have a wealth of life experiences now which I would have never got it if I hadn’t done the exchange programme.

Funding varies according to where you choose to study. Students usually receive funding to study abroad from one of several funding streams eg. Taith (Welsh Government’s international learning exchange programme), Turing Scheme (UK Government’s global programme to study/work abroad) or a Cardiff University bursary.

The amount of funding provided is to assist with the general cost of living and varies depending on destination country.
