Study abroad

International employers are increasingly seeking students with a ‘global awareness’, particularly those who can demonstrate their ability to work in another country by studying abroad during their degree. The Faculty of Engineering recognises this, offering support to students to find an exchange university where they can continue their chosen field of study without extending the length of their degree programme. We have exchange agreements with top universities across the globe, including the Universitas 21 group of highly prestigious research-led universities, and intercampus exchanges with our Malaysian and Chinese campuses.

Studying abroad will provide you with a unique opportunity to: 

  • see your academic subject from a different perspective in a new  academic environment 
  • acquire invaluable life skills
  • meet a wide variety of people and make an international network of friends
  • learn about yourself as you develop skills that studying in the UK will never provide
  • discover new strengths and abilities, conquer new challenges and solve new problems
  • gain global awareness to prepare yourself for a career abroad

"Spending a year of my course in Malaysia was one of the best decisions I ever made. In fact, the option to go out there was one of the reasons that I chose Nottingham to study in the first place, and I’m glad I did.

During the weekends we took the opportunity to visit many of the surrounding islands and neighbouring countries. During the year I made eighteen separate trips to nine different countries, and by making use of local coach routes and low fares airlines it was done on a budget too. There is a wide spectrum of countries to visit, from the more traditional and rural south east Asian destinations such as Vietnam and Cambodia, to the economic powers of Hong Kong  and Shanghai through the touristic Thailand and Bali, to name but a few. There is something to suit every taste and sense of adventure."
