At Bangor, there’s a chance to study abroad as a part of your degree or research programme. Spending up to a year abroad does not necessary mean that you add an extra year to your degree - a year abroad at one of our partner institutions is considered equivalent to a year at Bangor University.
Bangor has links with many other institutions and research establishments throughout the world, and you may have the opportunity to undertake periods of research in places as diverse as Nigeria, Mauritius and Hong Kong.
Overseas study is an amazing opportunity to :
- study with specialists
- see a different way of life
- broaden your horizons
- improve your career prospects
Most exchanges to Europe take place under the Socrates/Erasmus programme. We have agreements with 95 universities in 20 countries. A grant is given to participating eligible students to help with travel and living costs.
Both undergraduates and postgraduates can apply for this exchange programme and extra funding is available for those who wish to pursue language courses prior to their exchange.
U.S. and Canadian Exchanges
The exchanges to North America are for either 1 semester (term) or 1 academic year.
Undergraduate students interested in going to North America are required to go during their second year. Unfortunately, North American exchanges are not available for Marine Biology students in the School of Ocean Sciences or postgraduate students from any faculty.
If you’re interested in studying overseas, your departmental exchanges co-ordinator and the International Office will be happy to provide you with information during your first semester at Bangor.
