York's global opportunities give you the chance to explore the world.

As a York student, you'll have opportunities to take your learning abroad for a year or a summer. With us and our international partner universities on your side, it's your perfect chance to experience other cultures with the safety and support you need to thrive.

Why go abroad?

  • Give your employability a major boost, and a competitive edge in the global workforce before your career gets off the ground.
  • Broaden your cultural and social perspectives, and experience new environments as a fully-fledged local, not a tourist.
  • Develop your language and communication skills, expand your professional networks, and make friends from around the world.
  • Boost your self-confidence, independence and ambition, and  conquer challenges using strengths you never knew you had.
