Cardiff University Year Abroad

Study abroad for one or two semesters in the capital city of Wales, which offers a truly unique experience for students from outside the EU.

Study abroad

Immerse yourself in another language and culture with a unique year abroad experience.

The opportunity to spend a year abroad as an integral part of your course is not only invaluable to the development of your language skills, but is also an exciting way to meet new people and really explore your chosen country.

The third year of all language courses is spent abroad either as a student in one of our partner universities, as a language assistant in a foreign school, or on a work placement. Students studying one language will spend a full year in the host country, whereas if you choose to study two languages, a semester will be spent in each country.

Study abroad

We have developed numerous partnerships with top universities, which means that you have the opportunity to study in some of the most iconic and inspiring cities in Europe as well as across the world.

Destinations include Paris, Berlin, Milan and Barcelona, as well as many other universities across Europe. Spanish students also have the option to spend their year abroad further afield in Latin America, such as Lima (Peru) and Guadalajara (Mexico).

We will make sure you are well prepared to make the most of this experience.

Work abroad

Students have the opportunity to work with the British Council as teaching assistants on a part-time basis, in either a major city or a small rural town. This option provides excellent experience and a great introduction to teaching, as well as enabling the student to earn a salary sufficient to live on. Training is provided by the British Council in the destination country and we will provide guidance on finding accommodation on arrival.
