Discover the perfect opportunity to spend a summer working, volunteering or researching abroad. We've got a range of programmes to suit your needs and give you the best experience possible.
Essex Abroad on social media:
The aim of a work placement abroad is to develop skills you've learnt in the classroom in a practical real-world experience, combined with the added dimension of strengthening your cross-cultural competencies. An international work experience will enhance your employability and could be a valuable stepping stone as perhaps your first professional role.
We also offer a variety of short-term study programmes abroad.
There are no academic requirements for volunteering placements.
Research opportunities abroad offer excellent ways to become immersed in, and contribute to, a variety of research projects. They almost always offer generous scholarships and grants.
The following external resources may help you source a placement:
First year? Come along to one of our ‘Goodbye Essex, Hello….’ sessions to find out more about different countries. Second year?
