Study abroad

Experience the world and gain valuable life skills by studying abroad.

There are a range of options that give you the chance to travel and experience different cultures while still working towards your Nottingham degree, and studying abroad will make your CV look stronger.

Hear from Nottingham students who have taken advantage of opportunities to study abroad. 


University-wide opportunities

Our range of schemes means you can study almost anywhere! From our global campuses in China and Malaysia to Europe and the rest of the world.

The opportunities vary from six-week summer schools to one semester or a whole year.

There is a range of practical and financial support and advice available both before and during your stay, and our Language Centre can support you with language skills before you go.

Theology and Religious Studies - archaeological excavation, Tel Azekah, Israel

An archaeological excavation to Tel Azekah, Israel.

The site is famous for its fire signals during Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Judah, as well as being one of the main cities that Sennacherib claimed to have destroyed when he subdued Hezekiah. It overlooks the Valley of Elah, preserved in cultural memory as the location for David’s confrontation with Goliath.

NB This trip is organised intermittently and is not guaranteed to run in a particular year. For more information please email Alison Milbank.



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.
