Study abroad is an excellent opportunity for you to see the world, experience new cultures and study at one of our partner institutions overseas.

Study abroad periods are available either in Year 2 of a three-year course, or in Year 3 of a four-year course.

American Studies students can also apply for a limited number of opportunities to study for a whole year at The University of California.

For first hand experiences from our students, visit the Manchester On The Road blog to read accounts from:

  • Shifra Power (studying abroad at North Carolina State University, USA)
  • Ailsa Jones (studying abroad at Queen's University, Canada)

There's also an excellent travel and study blog from a previous student, Libby Turner: UoM Study Abroad Wordpress
