Studying or working abroad during your degree is a life-changing experience that can boost your self-confidence, independence and ambition. It also broadens your cultural and social perspectives, develops language skills and significantly increases your employability in the global jobs market.
The Department of Physics offers an integrated Year Abroad programme alongside all of our Physics program. The Year Abroad programme involves spending a full year at one of our partner institutions. Students will spend the first two years in York studying the core physics courses and attend language modules as part of the Languages For All (LFA) scheme, offered at both intermediate and advanced level.
There are a variety of destinations where you can spend your year abroad.

The Centre for Global Programmes offers a structures worldwide exchange programme where students can study up to one year at a partner university overseas with full academic recognition. The University has links with top institutions in North America, Asia, Australia and South Africa.
Studying abroad through this programme gives you the opportunity to experience different academic and social cultures without extending the length of your degree at York. Undergraduate exchanges are open to any undergraduates across all University departments and are determined by a University wide application scheme.
