Spending the summer abroad allows you to get a taste of living and working internationally without committing to a full year.
Summer schools or International Study Centres (ISCs) can enhance your global awareness and improve employability, leadership and advocacy skills.
Undergraduate Physics students, who wish to study for a credit replacing or additional year abroad, can apply to one of the departmental exclusive partners:
University of Bologna A2 Italian required
For academic queries, including joint honours options, contact your supervisor or the Departmental International Officer, Dr Jing Wu: firstname.lastname@example.org
Undergraduate Physics students may also apply, for an additional year abroad, to study at one of York’s worldwide exchanges, which are open to students from most other departments at the University.
Masters students on the 4 year programme may be able to take a credit replacing year at a worldwide partner in their third year. This requires approval from the department at the application stage. If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Dr Jing Wu: email@example.com
Explore the Year In Industry, Placement Year options, or summer international internships, if you are interested in work opportunities outside the UK.
