Your Student Experience

The benefits of studying abroad is all about adding value to your time as a student, and enjoying a truly dynamic, life-changing experience. You will experience a different way of life living in another country and interacting with people from different backgrounds. This allows you to know yourself better, gain more confidence in your decision-making processes and immerse yourself in a new culture, whilst enhancing your career prospects. The credits you are awarded abroad will be counted toward your final degree.

Year in Business

All our School of Business and Management single-honours degree programmes give you the opportunity to spend one year working for a company (aka sandwich year). You will take your placement after your second year of studies. Progression to the placement is conditional on good academic performance.

"One of the greatest things to come from my time in the School of Business and Management was my participation in the Business and Management Ambassador Scheme. From this role, I gained skills in teamwork, leadership, and public speaking - to name a few! Not only this, but I also gained a group of friends that I'd consider family." Dariush (below, centre)
