Study abroad as part of your Manchester degree

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

We have relationships with many exchange partners in Europe and across the globe – and we extend our network every year.

Benefits of study abroad

  • Enjoy the opportunity of a lifetime
  • Broaden your horizons
  • Grow as a person
  • Boost your prospects in the job market
  • Improve your language skills and cultural awareness
  • Gain a new perspective on your subject area and on higher education

Counting time abroad towards your Manchester degree

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