Study overseas this summer with LSBU's International Exchange ProgrammeStudying abroad for a semester or summer has many benefits for students at LSBU, all of which help to add value to students’ employability
London South Bank University (LSBU)’s International Exchange Programme is now open for applications for students wanting to spend part of their degree studying abroad.
The International Exchange Programme allows current LSBU students to spend a semester or summer in the USA or Australia, at one of the university’s partner institutions. With the modules studied abroad contributing directly to the LSBU degree, completing a Study Abroad programme doesn’t impact the length of the student’s LSBU course. Because the programme works on a partnership basis, LSBU is able to offer students the opportunity to study abroad without needing to pay any additional course fees to the overseas institution. A merit-based scholarship of up to £2500 is also available to assist students with associated costs of overseas study, including flights, insurance and accommodation.
The scheme allows students to study in New York, Chicago, Florida, Boston, Wisconsin and New Orleans in the USA, and with Central Queensland University, which has multiple campuses across Australia. It complements the existing overseas study opportunities offered to students via the Erasmus programme.
Torian L. Lee, Director of the Center for Intercultural and International Programs at Xavier University of Louisiana, New Orleans – LSBU’s newest International Exchange partner – comments: “Strong connections between overseas institutions that are academically aligned can help the sector to confer a sense of global confidence in students. This partnership between our institution and London South Bank University is important to us; it’s our mission to help students gain the leadership and business skills they need, to succeed in the world of global business.”
Gemma Proudley, Study Abroad Manager at LSBU, adds: “Employers are always looking for candidates that have done something unique and studying part of your degree abroad may be what sets you apart from others. This is a great chance to add value to an LSBU degree, and to have an incredible experience doing so.”
