Study Abroad

Study abroad

Studying abroad provides a fantastic opportunity for you to gain a valuable life experience, learn about new cultures and enhance your CV. We have a long tradition of supporting our students who study abroad and welcoming students from other institutions.

Overseas study is a key part of most of the Business School's undergraduate programmes. You can either spend a whole year abroad, or one semester. In addition, you are able to apply to a Summer School outside of your degree programme. Our factsheets have full details of the institutions we partner with.

Please note: BSc Accountancy does not offer a study abroad option due to the time spent on placement.

International Management students

As part of the course, International Management students spend the second year of study at one of our international partners.

University-wide exchange programme

The University-wide exchange programme at Nottingham is open to all full-time undergraduate students. Successful applicants can study at a partner institution for a semester as part of their degree.

Typically, Business School students attend exchanges at the:

  • University of Hong Kong, China
  • University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
  • University of Melbourne, Australia
  • Oregon State University, USA
  • Lund University, Sweden

The application deadline is at the end of the first semester in the first year of study.

Inter-campus exchange programme

Management; Finance, Accounting and Management; and Industrial Economics students can spend all or one semester of year two in either of our campuses in China or Malaysia.

You will study the same core modules overseas as those provided in Nottingham. The deadline for applying is usually at the end of the first semester in the first year of study.

Student testimonials

The opportunity to study abroad is often the highlight of a student's university career.

Read the testimonials...

I jumped into studying abroad with no idea what to expect. I had never left Europe, so Asia was a whole new ballgame. Induction was just like first year, except with such a vibrant community full of international students. It still has me wondering how people from such different cultures are so similar, and the friends I have made definitely made my year.

The extra grant money and reimbursed flights meant I had a lot more disposable income to travel around Asia - on weekends, in holidays and after my studies. Make the most of the opportunity, this is your chance to travel and see the world without having to save for months.

Holly Hickman, BSc Industrial Economics, studied for a full-year at Malaysia Campus

International Management gave us the chance to explore new environments and cultures, seek new opportunities, travel and make new friends. We both thoroughly enjoyed our year abroad and would highly recommend it.

Karan Shah and Ugam Sheth, BSc International Management, studied for a full year at McGill University, Canada

Spending a semester abroad at the Ningbo Campus was the most amazing opportunity of my university experience so far. Being able to study the same modules as I would in the UK but also being able to spend my weekends relaxing in the Ninghai Hot Springs, hiking in the Wulongtan Scenic Resort and visiting Yuyuan Gardens in Shanghai was definitely a change of scenery from Nottingham!

Not only this, I now have a number of international friends from all over the world who I am still in contact with today. This experience has enabled me to become a more independent traveller, allowed me to experience a new culture and gain memories that will last a lifetime.

Alisha Dhami, BSc Finance, Accounting and Management, studied for one semester at Ningbo China Campus

Studying abroad provided me with such a variety of new experiences and new skills. I would recommend everyone to do it!
