Working abroad

Working overseas is a great way to boost your employability and gain valuable international experience.

This page provides information on working as part of your year abroad.

Who can go

You can apply to work abroad for a year if you are:

  • a Modern Languages student
  • undertaking a course which includes a Year in Industry
  • undertaking a course which includes a Year with Industiral Experience

If you are not able to do a year abroad, you could still spend some time working or doing an internship overseas during the University holidays. We work with several partner organisations who offer placements abroad during the summer holidays. Find out more here.
