Studying on an exchange as a Sheffield Hallam student
We have exchange agreements with over 100 institutions across the world, so there's never been a better time to go on an exchange.
Living and studying in another country will help you gain new skills and stand out to employers when you graduate. Many of our students say taking part in an exchange is the most fun, exciting, challenging and life-changing experience of their student life.
Exchanges are a great way to
- improve your language skills
- understand you subject from a different perspective
- explore different cultures
- enhance your CV and career prospects
- increase your confidence, independence and life skills
- make new friends
- gain transferable credits towards your degree
William Broad, BA (Hons) International Business with Spanish, studied on an exchange at the University of Valencia
'I cannot think of a more significant time in my life where I have been forced to adapt, overcome and open my eyes to the unbelievable array of opportunities that exist in the world. Visiting a foreign land is great, but living in it, working, studying, surviving and thriving in it… these experiences are life changing!'
