Regent's University London offers one of the widest choices of study abroad locations of any UK institution. Our students have access to over 60 exceptional partner institutions around the world. A Study Period Abroad (SPA) replaces one term at Regent's and is a fantastic opportunity to both add value to your degree and expand your global perspectives.
Why study abroad?
Students that have international experience are:
• 19% more likely to get a First Class honours degree;
• 10% more likely to be in a graduate job;
• 20% less likely to be unemployed;
• earn a 7% higher starting salary, and;
• considered more effective as CEOs, Presidents and Managing Directors
by 72% of companies
Whilst going abroad adds significant value to your degree, it is more than an academic adventure. It’s a great way to enhance your language skills, your communication, confidence and problem-solving abilities. You will make new friends, explore your passions, experience a different part of the world and perhaps discover something about yourself you didn’t know: what’s not to like?
Our feedback shows that Regent’s students find studying abroad a very valuable and beneficial part of their degree programme and we encourage all students to participate in this invigorating and challenging experience. Embrace it, join the thousands of Regent’s students that have taken the journey and open the door to a lasting and positive influence on your life and future!

Study Abroad tuition fees
As a Regent's exchange student on SPA, you complete online enrolment as normal and continue to pay Regent’s University London your tuition fees – not to your host institution. Some programmes have reduced fees for the term(s) you are abroad. Please refer to the programme pages on our website to confirm the applicable fee rate for your SPA term(s).
You could also benefit from an Erasmus grant if you go somewhere within the Erasmus+ Network.
Other mobility opportunities
The Outbound team can also advise you on other overseas experiences, from volunteering to short-term summer or winter schools to work placements. Please feel free to reach out to ask for more information and we will happily help.
