Study abroad opportunities
Undertaking a study exchange is great for your personal and professional development. It is an excellent opportunity for self-reflection as you expand your academic and non-academic skills in a new environment. The experience you gain will be invaluable for your final year back at Surrey and may inform your career plans.
Within the School of Psychology, we want to encourage our students to experience diverse cultures and societies. On completion of their second year of study, our students can spend a transformative year studying at a university abroad, before returning to Surrey for their fourth and final year.

What our students say

I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to take a novel, creative approach to tasks and I feel that studying Psychology at Surrey has fostered this trait. With every assignment, we are encouraged to critique literature and go beyond merely regurgitating content.Jonny Beavis, Psychology BSc (Hons)
