Study Abroad opportunities for LUMS undergraduate students
Studying abroad as part of your Lancaster degree is a fantastic way to experience a different culture and environment, as well as developing a range of skills, increasing your confidence and contributing to your personal development. It will enhance your CV and is often a topic of conversation with future employers when you are applying for a job.
There are a number of international opportunities for undergraduates depending on how long you wish to spend abroad:
2 years abroad
1 year abroad (second year)
- Study abroad degree programmes – apply via UCAS
- Study abroad degree programmes – apply in your first year at LUMS
Optional year, term or summer abroad
An optional year, term or summer abroad: spend an optional year abroad in your second year or an optional term abroad in your final year. Or you can opt to take part in an international summer school in China.
You may also be interested in the many volunteering opportunities overseas that are available through LUSU.
The University's International Office has set up a very useful website that will help you undertand the Study Abroad process.
