Short-Term Global Opportunities

Get an international experience outside of term time.

What are short-term global opportunities?

Short-term global opportunities allow you to gain international experience as part of your degree without committing to a full year or semester abroad. These experiences usually occur over the summer months, outside of term time.

Shorter term global placements are a great option if you:

  • don’t want to extend the length/duration of your degree, but would like to add an international dimension to your study experience
  • have family, work or caring commitments which mean you can’t travel for long periods of time outside of the UK
  • just want to try something different without a big-time commitment

There are lots of positive reasons to incorporate a global experience as part of your degree including the opportunity to make cultural connections, improve your intercultural understanding, discover a new country and enhance your skills and CV. 

Something for everyone

Undertaking a more flexible placement across the summer lets you choose an experience that’s right for you.

There are a broad range of opportunities to choose from and across a wide range of countries. These include:

  • summer schools
  • internships and short-term work experience
  • volunteering
  • online experiential learning

We partner with many fantastic organisations who offer a range of experiences. Whether you’re interested in Sustainability, Community Building or Research and Exploration, there is an opportunity available for everyone.
