A Year Abroad

If you are studying on one of our four year programmes and meet our academic pre-requisites you will spend the whole of your third year abroad, enabling you to immerse yourself completely in another culture, language, and of course the art and architecture. 

During your year away, you will remain registered at York and do not need to pay tuition fees at a host institution.  Our Year Abroad/Visiting Student Co-ordinator, will support and guide you throughout the preparations for your adventures and during your time away.  Visit the Global Opportunities History of Art page to find out more.
