Study, work and travel the world

Your global adventure starts here. The GoGlobal programme offers life-changing overseas trips, and gives you the chance to meet people from all around the world and right here on campus. These are fantastic ways to travel, experience another culture and improve your communication skills. They're a big benefit to your future job prospects too – in our globalised world employers look for people who can demonstrate cultural awareness.

Explore the world

Work placements, trips, internships, volunteering or chances to study abroad

While studying at Hallam you can explore the world through

  • Volunteering

We'll help you get out there and make a difference. You'll make a contribution to communities in other countries, immerse yourself in new cultures, and develop your skills and confidence. You could even learn a new language. GoGlobal supports volunteering opportunities all over the world, and you can do it as part of your studies or independently.

  • Field Trips

Each Hallam faculty organises tailor-made educational field trips to destinations around the world, relating to a wide range of subject areas. You could join a global organisation for a hands-on placement, study at one of our partner institutions or visit an international exhibition, festival or research centre.

  • GoGlobal socials

We're a multicultural university in a multicultural city. With students from 100 different countries studying on our campuses, you don't have to go far for intercultural exchanges. Meet other students from diverse backgrounds at GoGlobal's regular local events, including social gatherings, day trips and scenic walks in the Peak District.

  • Global Citizenship Portfolio

Develop your knowledge and understanding of other cultures through GoGlobal's self-study module. It'll be recorded on your exit transcript as 'Global Citizenship Portfolio', showing employers that you've developed the skills to communicate effectively across cultures.

For some courses there are exciting opportunities to take a placement in Europe, North America, Australia or Asia. Overseas placements show employers that you're willing to be independent and step out of your comfort zone to face new challenges. And if you secure a placement in another EU country you may be eligible for financial support in the form of an Erasmus+ grant*, co-funded by the European Union, which contributes towards the extra costs of living abroad.

Study abroad

You could spend time studying in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and the USA. And if your placement is in Europe you may be able to apply for an Erasmus grant*.
