Study Abroad

Our departments can offer you the opportunity to apply to study for a year abroad from a selection of prestigious universities around the world. This is a competitive process through all three departments. So while places are given only to suitable candidates, there is a wide selection of places available.

As part of your Politics, Philosophy and Law degree, you can apply to add one intercalated year to your degree programme. If your application is successful, you will go abroad between your second and final years of study. The grades you achieve abroad will not count directly towards your final degree, but if you pass the year your degree certificate will show you studied PPL for four years “with intercalated year”. All three departments have placements in Europe and beyond.

Here are the places that have been available to current students in the three departments in 2016/17. This list is illustrative of the types of options that will be available in future years:

Australia – Monash University (Melbourne, Australia with the opportunity to spend the second half of the year at the Monash Malaysia campus in Selangor, Malaysia)

Hong Kong – University of Hong Kong, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

China – Tsinghua University

Japan – Hokkaido University, Waseda University

Europe – A large number of partner universities in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Turkey
