Working Abroad as a Sheffield Hallam student

Erasmus logo

We have suspended all student overseas travel, which included international work placements for semester one of the 2020/21 academic year (September start). Due to the ongoing uncertainty relating to Covid-19 pandemic, the University will be monitoring the situation closely and following Government guidelines for the rest of the academic year.

For full details about our placement offer and updates in relation to travel please visit our placement pages.

Many of our full-time undergraduate degrees include the opportunity to gain work experience. 

If your course includes a work placement, you can apply to complete it overseas. There are exciting opportunities in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.

Placements are a great way to put your learning into practice, get valuable industry experience and boost your CV. By doing your placement abroad, you’ll become more independent, learn about different cultures and take on new challenges. All of this will help you gain a global perspective and stand out to employers when you graduate.

European financial support

If you secure a placement in another EU country you may be eligible for financial support in the form of an Erasmus+ grant. Erasmus+ funding is available for up to a maximum of 12 months per level of study, so if you have already received Erasmus+ funding for a prior study period, this will be taken into account in terms of the duration already funded. For more information email erasmus-exchange@shu.ac.uk

Speak to your College placement team for more information about the opportunities to work abroad during your degree. The Erasmus+ grant for work placements is administered by the careers and employability team.
