Further study abroad
One of the benefits of studying abroad at postgraduate level is the opportunity to work with major world specialists in your subject.
There are professional advantages to studying abroad, especially if the subject is specialised or particularly well resourced. In addition there is the experience that living in another country provides.
Please be aware that study abroad, compulsory year abroad, optional placements/internships and integrated year in industry opportunities may change at any time for a number of reasons, including curriculum developments, changes to arrangements with partner universities or placement/industry hosts, travel restrictions or other circumstances outside of the university's control. Every effort will be made to update this information as quickly as possible should a change occur.
Do your research
You need to start carrying out your research early - ideally 18 months before the course starts. Many aspects of studying abroad are different to the UK, such as:
- course titles
- entry requirements
- application process
Whilst academic postgraduate qualifications have an international value, you may need to exercise caution when looking at vocational courses as they may only be valid in the country awarding them.
You may want to do some research into studying abroad either at the China or Malaysia campuses of the university, or through an exchange programme.
