Overview

This valuable social and academic opportunity can also provide essential work experience.

Students who go on an exchange year come from all backgrounds, departments and subject areas. But they all come back to Edinburgh with:

  • a changed outlook
  • new friends from around the world
  • the desire to do more travelling

Study abroad offers social and academic opportunities, and the opportunity for work experience that can prove crucial in finding a job after graduation.
