Studying abroad will offer you tons of experience in a different environment. Not only will it enrich your academic experience, it will also give you the chance to get to know another country and culture in a way that's not always possible as a tourist.
Check out our exchange finder to explore the countries you can study in.
Essex Abroad on social media:
Did you know? You don't have to be fluent in another language to study abroad. Most of our partner institutions offer modules in English. There is always the option to study the local language, either in extra-curricular language classes or even in for-credit modules.
There are also different ways you can learn a language at Essex. This will not only expand your options for studying and working or volunteering abroad, it will increase your global and cultural awareness, give you confidence when going abroad and give you a competitive edge when you’re looking for a job.
Please note, that you normally need evidence of advance language level to study in the local language so most of the options below will be for social benefit.
We run lots of different sessions throughout the year to provide you with essential information about going abroad. From first year and second year briefings to funding chats and country low-downs, we've got it covered.
