Exploring a new country, discovering the culture, improving your language skills and having a fantastic experience – who wouldn’t want to work or study overseas?
Finding an overseas placement or studying in a foreign university is an incredible opportunity, enhancing your learning experience and preparing you for the global employment market.
“Companies are operating over so many international boundaries, so the more languages and experience with different cultures you can bring to a company, the more you can help expand its global reach.”
Oliver Watson, Managing Director for UK, North America and the Middle East at Michael Page.
Aston University maintains strong relationships with partner institutions abroad, and works with employers to create placements around the world. We also participate in the Erasmus+ Programme, helping more students with funding to work or study overseas.
All places are advertised on Aston Futures. Make sure you check each advert carefully for the details and application instructions.
Statement about Hong Kong situation
Due to the escalation of the situation in Hong Kong and the safety of our students being paramount, Aston University has taken the decision to curtail all study placements there until further notice. Students currently on study placement are being supported to return to the UK and alternative arrangements are being made for students due to start study placements in Hong Kong in January 2020.
