British Council assistantship in a school
As a student in the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies you can apply to spend a year working as a language assistant in a school abroad. The assistantships are arranged with the British Council and you can find out more about the opportunities, application process and much more on the British Council website.
You can spend your residence abroad studying at another university. Depending on your course, you will either spend a term at one of our partner universities or a full year. Studying abroad is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the language and culture that you are studying. Students on non-language courses, such as linguistics and phonetics, can also take advantage of studying abroad.
The work placement year (also known as the Erasmus+) is an increasingly sought after way of spending the year abroad and provides an opportunity for you to gain work experience and to be exposed to different cultures and opportunities. Most of our students can choose the work placement year, however you must check your course information for exact details as some courses offer a study abroad option only. However, if this is the case you can take advantage of opportunities that arise throughout your studies including internships, work placements and even part-time work to gain valuable work experience skills.
