At Staffordshire University we’re committed to providing all students with the best possible student experience. As well as continually investing in some of the best university facilities our students also have opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities both in the UK and overseas.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and following guidance issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Public Health England (PHE) and the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), we are currently unable to support applications relating to travel. We will continue to monitor the situation and update these pages at appropriate times.


Go International

Your global adventure starts here. We’ve committed to increasing opportunities for students to undertake life-changing trips abroad, whether you decide to work, study or volunteer.


Why do it?

Enhance your future employability and broaden your global network

More and more employers now actively seek students with international experience of studying, working or volunteering abroad. Having a new perspective on different cultures, language skills and a willingness to try new things will help make your CV stand out.

Personal development – gain independence and life experience

Studying, working or volunteering abroad as part of your degree is a fantastic way to stand out from others. It will demonstrate you’re open-minded, independent and can adapt to new surroundings.

Broaden your horizons and enrich your cultural understanding

Studying, working or volunteering abroad gives you the opportunity to travel and see the world.

Make lifelong friends from around the world

One of the best things about studying, working or volunteering abroad is the friends you’ll make while you’re away. Sharing this experience will create a unique bond and you’ll have the opportunity to go back and visit them in the future.

Learn a new language and develop intercultural communications skills

There is no better way to learn a language than to immerse yourself in a new culture. You’ll be exposed to the language on a daily basis and have the chance to practice it in an educational or professional setting.


To help our students make the most of the opportunities available to them we set up the Student Experience Fund, so there is no better time to explore going abroad. The only restriction on where you can visit is your own imagination…so where will you go?
