Our students go global

An international experience will not only enhance your CV, but it can provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture's healthcare system and ultimately make you a better healthcare professional.

As a School we are committed to enabling you to have an international learning experience. Over the last 5 years, more than 200 healthcare undergraduate students have undertaken an international experience, and healthcare travel grants worth more than £80,000 have been awarded.
