Sunderland Abroad

Want to take part of your studies abroad? We have short-term summer options, one semester and yearly programmes available. This way you have the choice of a time frame that can work for you so you can gain international experience for anything from two weeks to three months.

The time you spend abroad replaces the time you would have spent in Sunderland so there is no need to extend your studies. Plus, the credit gained from the time spent abroad will be transferred back to your records in Sunderland.
