Study abroad: Opening up a world of possibilities

There is a great big world out there and the University of Hertfordshire will help you explore it.

Spend part of your course studying or working abroad and pick up valuable skills and experience which today’s businesses really value.

With more and more companies working internationally, there has never been a better time to be well travelled. Experience of living in another country – and even better, speaking the language – can make a great impression on future employers.

You have the opportunity on most of our courses to spend time studying at one of our many partner universities overseas.

It is an adventure you will never forget, boosting your confidence, increasing your independence, introducing you to new people and giving you a fresh perspective on the world.

Can I study abroad?

Study abroad is open to full time undergraduates who have completed at least 1 year of study.



You may be required to achieve certain grades and for particular universities it may be subject to sufficient places being available and suitable courses being offered in terms of curriculum.

You will gain academic recognition for your period of study abroad, which may be in credit, the degree award title or both.

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) facilitates the transfer of credit between European universities, and similar transfer agreements exist with our non-European partners.

You will be expected to undertake equivalent of 60 UK credits or 30 ECTS credits per semester. An ECTS credit equates to two UK credits.

In the USA, the equivalent workload will be 12-15 credit hours per semester.


Erasmus Whatever year you study abroad, you pay no tuition fees to the partner university, and if you take placement in a third year, you will pay no tuition fees to us either.
