Study Abroad

We make it possible for you to undertake study abroad, either during your Essex course or by attending Essex whilst you are studying elsewhere. You will find study abroad extremely worthwhile and enjoyable, both socially and educationally.

Here at Essex we recognise the importance of studying and living abroad. This means we offer you many opportunities to spend a full year studying in another country. As a biological sciences student, you have a range of fieldwork opportunities available to you and our Essex Abroad team can help you plan your time overseas.

As well as being a fantastic experience, study abroad enhances your employability. A period of study abroad on your CV tells employers that you are mature, adaptable, organised and independent. You can study abroad on the majority of our courses as part of your study to enhance your learning and widen your opportunities upon graduation.
