Opportunities to study abroad

Studying abroad is an invaluable experience that offers ongoing benefits outside of your academic life.

Study abroad

The University of Edinburgh offers students the opportunity to undertake a wide variety of international experiences. Living and studying abroad can broaden your horizons, transform your academic perspective, and help you to get the very most from your undergraduate career. Meeting people with different views and lifestyles gives you new insights and widens your frame of reference. Studying abroad provides you with a different perspective on your degree subject and your career path - this is your chance to see something of the world, and find out who you are!

You can apply to study overseas during Year 3 of your degree programme. We have partnerships with a large number of prestigious universities across Europe, North and South America, Australasia and Asia from which you may choose.
