Study abroad as part of your Manchester degree

Studying abroad allows you to undertake part of your undergraduate degree outside of the UK at one of our exchange partner universities.

We have partnerships with many institutions throughout Europe and across the globe – and our network continues to grow.

Benefits of studying abroad

  • Enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime.
  • Experience a different education style, gaining a new perspective on your subject area. 
  • Enhance your future employability and broaden your global network.
  • Personal development – gain independence and life experience.
  • Improve your language skills and cultural awareness.
  • Make lifelong friends from around the world.

Counting time abroad towards your Manchester degree

Studying abroad will count towards your degree. Either the partner university will share your results from the time spent with them and we will convert these into UK grades – counting towards your final degree classification – or your time abroad will be recognised in your degree title, eg Geography with International Study.
