*Please note that the partner universities available are dependent on the study abroad programme you apply for and on your degree. The list of partner universities is also subject to change.

Choose your study option

There are two types of study abroad programmes available:

  1. Replacement term abroad: (not available to Accounting & Finance or Actuarial Science students). You can apply to spend the first term of your second year from your three year degree course studying abroad in English at one of our partner institutions. During your time abroad you will cover core material, taking equivalent courses at the host institution.

      Please note that the partner universities available abroad for the replacement term abroad programme vary from degree to degree and are more limited than for the sandwich year abroad programme. If you would like to check the current available partners for your desired degree, please email: cass-ug-outgoing@city.ac.uk.

  2. Sandwich year abroad: Between your second and third year of study, spend an additional year studying abroad. The sandwich year option extends your degree to four years and offers a great deal of flexibility. You can study abroad for the full year or combine one term of study overseas with a period of self-organised work experience for the other term. Some students even study at two different partner universities over the course of their sandwich year.
