A period of study abroad can be undertaken on the
LLB Laws (including Study Abroad).
Our students get a huge amount from our study abroad programme, returning
to Essex with greater levels of maturity and a renewed sense of purpose.
By undertaking a study abroad course, you also have the opportunity to
gain new skills and develop a more international outlook, particularly with
a view to sharing and improving your new legal and cultural knowledge. The
marks you obtain abroad will also contribute towards your final degree.

Studying abroad in English
If you want to study abroad but do not feel comfortable learning another
language, then there are plenty of countries where teaching is delivered in
European countries with modules taught in English are The Netherlands,
Greece and Sweden. We also have partner institutions in the United States,
Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong.
Develop your language skills
Studying in Germany, Austria, France, Italy or Spain gives you the chance
to immerse yourself in the local language and culture.
That means you will need to show you are fluent in the language required
when you apply for study abroad. For example, you will need a minimum of
grade B at A-level in the required language, unless you are a native of your
chosen country or can demonstrate good enough language skills in another
way. We are happy to help if you have any questions.
Help with languages
If you are going to a country where you need to speak a specific foreign
language fluently, we will help you by providing two years of language
tuition before you go abroad.
You may be exempted from this tuition if you already have extremely good
Unfortunately this language tuition is only available to you if you are
already proficient in a language, as we do not feel it possible to learn a
language from beginner level in the time available.
