Global Connections

As a Staffordshire University student, we encourage you to make the most of the world you live in and add a global dimension to your degree.

Staffordshire University's Global Connections team are here to provide opportunities for you to gain positive international experiences worldwide. You may be interested in work experience or studying abroad as far afield as Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Fiji; or perhaps you are inspired at the through of travelling to another European country such as Spain, Germany or Finland. A work, volunteer or study experience abroad will enrich your learning, enhance your future employability prospects and offer you a truly life changing experience.

According to the British Council and The Higher Education Funding Council for England data, gaining international experience supports development of skills and competences 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.

What can our Global Connections team do for you?

The Global Connections team at Staffordshire University supports programmes and opportunities worldwide, including:

  • Study Abroad (complete part of your degree programme at a university abroad for 1 semester or an academic year)
  • Volunteering placements abroad
  • Work experience placements abroad, from 4 weeks to an entire year – ideal if your course has a Placement Year option!
  • Short visits and conferences abroad led by academic staff

We can support you with finding the right experience considering how far you want to travel, identifying the length of time you would like to spend abroad and sourcing funding to support your international experience. 

Come and chat to us!

To find out more about the opportunities we offer, get in contact with Wendy in our Global Connections team, who is dedicated to helping you find the experience that’s right for you.

You can meet Wendy or one of her colleagues in the Science Centre, Mondays 11am – 12pm, and Wednesdays 3 – 4pm.
