The ability to understand and engage with others from diverse cultural backgrounds is an important life skill and one that is valued by employers.
We encourage all of our undergraduates to consider studying abroad for either a term or a whole academic year. As our student testimonials attest, the rewards of experiencing a foreign culture and confidence gained from living abroad, is invaluable.
Typically, students who go abroad do so in their second year if on a three-year degree programme and in their third year if on a four-year programme. The language of instruction on all exchanges is English. Destinations in which recent HPP students have studied include: the USA, Australia, Turkey, Romania and Spain. Please visit the International office for a list of potential places you can go to on an international (outside Europe) or Erasmus (Europe-wide) exchange.
