Summer abroad

Spending the summer abroad allows you to get a taste of living and working internationally without committing to a full year. 

Find out more about summer opportunities and travel awards.

European exchange

SPSW students studying BA (Hons) Criminology can apply for a credit-replacing exchange for the first term of their third year at one of the Sociology's European partners.

Speak to your department to discuss the departmental requirements of your degree programme and to ensure that you are aware of the the mandatory modules for your time at the partner university.

SPSW are currently exploring the additional year abroad option. For more information please contact the SPSW International Officer, Dr Zoe Irving: zoe.irving@york.ac.uk
