International Undergraduate Placements 2022/2023

Due to partner cancellations and continued challenges faced as a result of the pandemic, the University has had to permit students who should be going abroad in 2021-2022 the option to defer their international placement to 2022-2023.  This will unfortnately have an impact on competitive programmes such as Summer Schools and the International Exchange Programme.

As a result of this, a few Universities will likely be removed from the list of options advertised, there will be strong competition for places for 2022-2023 and priority for places will go to those students who have been admitted via UCAS onto a 4 year ‘with international study’ programme.
