Broaden your horizons and improve your employability by taking part in the University’s Study Abroad programme.

History student, Alice Hirst (pictured above), studied abroad at Monash University, Australia. She said of the programme: “Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I have made at University. Academically it gave me the chance to study under a different university system and get a different perspective on my degree.
As a History student it was particularly interesting to learn about Australia’s relationship with their indigenous people and getting to live within an Australian society allowed me to see, first-hand, the legacy of their history. One semester away will allow you to have some of the best times of your life!“
Past Study Abroad participants report that they developed a number of important life skills while abroad, including self-reliance, confidence and problem solving skills. They also met people from across the world, enhancing their global networks and making lifelong friends! While abroad, most students also explore their host country and neighbouring countries through extensive travel, usually for cheaper prices and shorter journey times than travelling to them from the UK.
Liverpool has exchange partnerships with some of the best universities in the world, which means that you will have an amazing academic experience whist you study abroad.
