At the Faculty of Business and Society, part of your degree course can be studied in Europe or the US, so you can experience what it’s like to live and study abroad.
A year abroad is another great boost to your CV which can help you stand out from the crowd. You’ll get an international perspective on business, become more independent and confident, make new friends, have lots of fun and even learn a new language. And what’s more, it’s not a ‘gap year’, so the time you spend studying abroad will count towards your degree.
In most cases, students who study abroad choose to study for a full academic year (10 months) which can either replace a year of your degree course or be added to the duration of your course.
Where can I study abroad?
The Faculty of Business and Society has joint educational initiatives with a number of partner universities that provide access to study opportunities for its students. You are advised to thoroughly research our partners websites in conjunction with your subject area.
Studying in the USA – For students wishing to study abroad in North America, the Faculty of Business and Society has joint educational initiatives and learning agreements with institutions across the United States of America providing University of South Wales students with the opportunity to study aboard within these partner institutions.

Studying in Europe – If you are interested in studying part of your undergraduate degree programme in Europe, the Erasmus+ (European Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) programme is funded by the EU and if successful you will be eligible for a monthly grant.

Applying to study abroad
Ideally students considering to study abroad should show their interest during their first academic year, so options can be explained. The application process can be lengthy, and you will need to prepare adequately for the exchange if you decide to take part.
If you are interested in studying abroad or you would like to discuss possible options for studying abroad, you should inform the University as early as possible.
