Why Study Abroad?

Incorporating a year of study in another country can offer a wealth of value to your degree. You will have the advantage to meet other students from all over the world, learn from other leading academics at your selected university and gain exciting experience that can help you stand out in your career.

Living and studying abroad can also showcase your ability to adapt in your learning, build on your independence and provide you with the opportunity to further your knowledge. It’s also an opportunity to learn how the science you’ve been studying is being applied around the world, as current stage 4 Physics with Astrophysics with a Year Abroad student who has just returned from Indianna explains:

“My year in Indiana was excellent and enjoyable. It taught me a lot about how other parts of the world teach science, and the facilities provided there were different and i was able to take advantage of those. It was the best year of my life so far, and has helped me amazingly on my return to Kent from learning all these new study techniques.”

Niall Miller, Physics with Astrophysics with a Year Abroad student

As well as the benefit to your education and personal development, you will also have the chance to explore the sights in another country, soak up the culture and make life-long friends during your stay. Aidan Milston, a Physics with a Year Abroad student who has just returned to Kent explains:

“Studying abroad was a great experience which allowed me to meet new people and experience a different lifestyle whilst also allowing for a new perspective on my studies.  It was the most interesting year of my degree so far in both a social and academic sense.”
