Spending a half session or academic year studying abroad at one of the University of Aberdeen’s study exchange partner universities around the world will give your degree added value. It will also enable you to widen and deepen your subject knowledge and potentially develop language skills whilst living in a different culture. The Study Exchange programme equips students with an unrivalled range of skills, in addition to their understanding of the biological world, which is greatly valued by employers.
Students studying a degree within the School of Biological Sciences can apply to study abroad for all or part of second year and all or part of third year.
