International Experiences for Students

There are many opportunities for Oxford students to study, work, undertake research or travel abroad. These opportunities include overseas internships, study abroad during term time, Erasmus exchanges, summer schools and field trips, depending on the course and level of study.

Overall, last year more than 1,300 undergraduate students and a large proportion of graduate students participated, including just over 200 in the Oxford University International Internship Programme and over 400 in year abroad and student exchange programmes.

More details on these, as well as many other study abroad and internship opportunities in dozens of countries across the world, can be found on the Student Gateway - Go Abroad.
