The year abroad that I spent studying in Toulouse was the best year of my life and I quickly immersed myself in French life such as new friends, night market concerts and travelling across the country on €1 buses. Nottingham also gives students the choice to spend the year working in France.
Study abroad opportunities are dependent upon satisfactory performance and subject to availability. Options may change due to curriculum developments and institutional partnership renewals. For the latest information, visit our study abroad pages.
