The 2011 QS Global Employer Survey found that 60% of global employers would actively seek or attribute value to an international study experience when recruiting.

Global partner universities

We have 35 highly-ranked partner universities across the world where you can study as part of your degree. They include eight of the top 50 world ranked universities (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017-18) including: University of Hong Kong, National University of SingaporeHong Kong University of Science and Technology, University of Michigan and University of British Columbia. .

Choose your study option

There are three types of study abroad programme available:

  1. Replacement Second Year Abroad: (not available to Accounting and Finance or Actuarial Science students). Spend the second year of your three year degree course studying abroad. During this time you will cover the core material of your second year Cass programme, taking equivalent courses and business electives at the partner university.
  2. Replacement Term Abroad: (Finance and Management students only). Spend one term of the 2nd year of your Management degree studying 2nd year modules in English at one of our partner universities abroad. This option means you would still complete your degree in 3 years. The replacement term abroad will count towards your degree and will be endorsed on your degree certificate. Students apply for this option in their 1st year.
  3. 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.

Support during your study abroad

Our dedicated Student Exchange Office is on hand to guide and support you throughout the process.
The Cass Student Exchange Fair held in the first term will give you a chance to chat with students from our partner universities and Cass students who have already studied abroad.
