Could you give us a bit more information about the study abroad options available and what is the process for applying to them?
So there are a few programmes at York where you can apply at UCAS stage and you can apply saying you want to spend all or part of your year abroad. Generally that’s part of programmes that include a language, so for example French and Spanish with Linguistics, or History and French.
That would normally be a four year programme with your third year spent overseas. It might be spent at a university, it might be spent working. So that’s one option.
The other option is that the university has a wide range of global partners: the University of Pennsylvania is one, the University of British Columbia in Canada, the University of Toronto, Columbia University, the University of Washington; options in Australia, South Africa, throughout Europe, HKU and the National University of Singapore.
Typically you would apply for these once you get to York and you essentially add on a year to your programme with us. It might be competitive within your wider subject area or within the course curriculum.
