Your world, your way

Studying abroad will offer you tons of experience in a different environment. Not only will it enrich your academic experience,  it will also give you the chance to get to know another country and culture in a way that's not always possible as a tourist.

Learning a language

Did you know? You don't have to be fluent in another language to study abroad. Most of our partner institutions offer modules in English. There is always the option to study the local language, either in extra-curricular language classes or even in for-credit modules.

There are also different ways you can learn a language at Essex. This will not only expand your options for studying and working or volunteering abroad, it will increase your global and cultural awareness, give you confidence when going abroad and give you a competitive edge when you’re looking for a job.

Your options for learning a language at Essex include: 

  • Choosing a credit-bearing language module as part of your degree - check if your course allows for an outside option
  • Learning a language alongside your studies with Languages for All, on a not-for-credit basis and at no extra cost
  • Getting an Essex Modern Languages Certificate as a co-curricular option
  • Studying languages as your main degree
