Why go abroad?

USW is passionate about supporting students to experience an international activity in the fields of work, study or volunteering. A mobility can commence from two weeks and last up to a full year.

Participating in a global experience can enhance your employability prospects, increase your confidence, and help to build a network of connections globally all whilst travelling the world!

Depending on your area of interest, students and staff have travelled to many global destinations including Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, USA, South Africa and Japan.

Funding Schemes

We understand that there are many factors to think about when considering a period abroad, one of which is money. The University of South Wales has been successful in its bid for Turing and Taith funding for the 2023-24 academic year.

Both schemes are available to UK and International students from all backgrounds to provide financial grants to support a period of activity abroad.
