Global Connections

As a Staffordshire University student, you have a chance to study and work abroad during your time studying with us. Participating in study or work experience abroad will support you in gaining new skills, developing transversal skills and enhancing your employability. You will be able to make new friends and enhance your intercultural awareness.

In the past, our students have travelled to many places across the world using our global professional networks, from the cosmopolitan cities of Spain, to the bustling streets of Vietnam. 

Study and work-experience abroad is a great way to enrich your studies, improve your employability, and it gives you a stepping stone to travel to parts of the world you may never have considered visiting before. Whatever course you’re studying, the world is yours to experience and our dedicated Global Connections team will help you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity during your time with us.

According to the British Council and The Higher Education Funding Council for England data, gaining international experience supports the development of skills and competencies and may enhance your employability. Students with international experience also often achieve higher starting salaries, develop the global skills employers require and achieve better career progression.

Watch the videos below and see for yourself the adventures enjoyed in Vietnam by Staffordshire University students, plus hear top tips for working abroad from Staffs student Victoria.
