With International Study

Study opportunities across the globe

With this exciting option your degree would be four years in total, with the third year spent studying at one of our internationally recognised partner business schools or universities across the world. If you really want to throw yourself into an international environment and get to know a place well, this is definitely for you. Your year abroad counts towards your degree, and your degree title would change to reflect this, adding ‘With International Study’ to your existing programme. You’ll then return to Exeter to complete your fourth and final year.

You can use your year abroad to take advantage of a different institution’s expertise to learn something new, or take the opportunity to really get to know a subject area you love taught from a different perspective. We also encourage students to take classes in other subject areas where possible to broaden their knowledge base. However you choose to do it, you will be further enhancing your knowledge and skills, all whilst absorbing a new country and culture.

FAQs

These four-year options are available for all our programmes and you can either apply directly through UCAS (see the UCAS codes on the individual programme pages) or ask to transfer onto one of these options later, usually during your 1st year.

The study abroad programmes are competitive, and there is a selection procedure that takes place in your 2nd year. Your acceptance on to a year abroad is subject to satisfactory academic performance (60% in your first year for International Study) and the level of research you have undertaken into your chosen institution.

To help you prepare for the selection procedure and ultimately your year abroad, we offer guidance and support throughout your 1st and 2nd year. Each of our partner universities is well equipped to deal with incoming exchange students and there will be designated members of staff at the partner university, and at Exeter, to help and support you during your time abroad. You will also be able to access support from our network of students who have visited Exeter and are willing to provide friendship and guidance during your year abroad.

Most countries that our students go to allow you to get a part time job. Although it won’t count towards your degree, some students on ‘With International Study’ programmes do international internships at the end of their year abroad. Although we cannot guarantee work placements, there are a range of teams at Exeter or your host university who may be able to help with the process.

Whether you are a UK or international student, you won’t have to pay tuition fees to the host University for your year abroad and you will pay just £1,350 tuition fees to Exeter. You are still entitled to receive your student loan for your time abroad and some Local Authorities offer additional funding for Study Abroad students and may reimburse you for some of the costs incurred in your period abroad (e.g. air fares, insurance costs). To find out if you are eligible, please contact your Local Authority.
