Current students can login to CampusMoodle to find out what you need to do to prepare for study abroad as part of your RGU course.
There are a number of benefits of undertaking a period of study or work abroad.
While it is always a good idea to learn the language of any country you might study in - all RGU students who undertake a study abroad period will be taught in English!
What’s more students may be entitled to receive a Turing Scheme grant! All the credits you earn abroad will even count toward your RGU degree!
Not only that but a 2009 study found that 29% of students who had studied abroad were earning over £20,000, compared to 17% of students who had not studied abroad. The figure was even higher (37%) for students who had participated in an overseas work placement.

Stand Out in the Job Market
Mobility is a fact of life - we live in a mobile world where people travel in increasing numbers - it affects our work, our pleasure, our food, our law, our environment and our society. Exchange prepares you for this mobile world.
A Different Outlook
The Exchange Programme offers you the chance to study your subject in different contexts, with different teachers and different class mates. You’ll be surprised by the different approach and the insights that students from other countries can bring. It’s both challenging and highly rewarding.
The exchange experience will enhance your personal development, your job opportunities, your confidence, and your enjoyment of life. Exchange students are not tourists - you'll live and participate in the day to day life of the country you choose. Living and studying in a new country is a challenge – you will find yourself facing new and unexpected situations. Overcoming these obstacles and learning to manage your life within another culture brings maturity, confidence and self-reliance – great life skills.
Not only will you acquire a broader range of skills to offer a future employer, but you’ll have fun doing it. Exchange students say it is the best part of their time at university, after all nearly one in ten find their life partner while doing their Exchange programme.
So, discover a different culture, make new friends from lots of other countries, learn a foreign language and do something that will look great on your CV.
