Internationalise your Queen’s experience

You can enhance your degree with a period of study or work abroad.

It can be a great way of developing personal and employability skills, experiencing exciting new cultures, gaining a more global outlook and perspective, as well as – and definitely not to be forgotten – an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun.
