Manchester Met Students Abroad

Many of our courses offer the option to study abroad in countries including Australia, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, the USA and Europe.

Have you ever considered studying abroad as part of your academic programme at Manchester Metropolitan University?

Travelling and experiencing life in another country can be a life changing experience as you discover a new learning environment, make lifelong friends and broaden your horizons.

Research into the benefits of studying or working abroad reports a positive impact on academic and career outcomes.

Find out about the benefits on the GO International website

Many of our courses offer an option to study abroad for three, six or ten months, at partner universities in countries including Australia, Argentina, Canada, China, Hong Kong SAR, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico and the USA plus over 20 countries across Europe. The University participates in the Erasmus+ programme and awards grants to students studying abroad in Europe and beyond. Depending on your course of study, this could be integrated into Year 2 or as an additional year abroad in Year 3 of a four-year degree programme.

Opportunities to study abroad are competitive. You will need to apply for a place and, to be eligible to go, you must have successfully completed your first year of study, meet all academic requirements set by your department and have the support of your academic department.


Various promotional talks will be running throughout the Autumn term. These talks will inform you about the opportunities on offer and the benefits of studying abroad.

Listen to Michelle's study abroad story to hear what impact the study abroad experience has had on her personal life, education and future plans. 

Further details about the talks will be posted on the Events page so that you can choose which one to attend. Please also look out for Moodle announcements and attend departmental sessions during the Autumn term to find out more.

We encourage you to join our facebook group to become a part of the outbound community and see what our current outbound students are getting up to.
