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) is a fantastic opportunity to enhance a university education and broaden global perspectives.
Why study abroad?
Participating in a Study Abroad programme is more than an academic adventure – it is a great way to live in another country and broaden your horizons. 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 and this will have a lasting and positive influence on your life and future!

Study Abroad tuition fees
As a Regent's student on SPA, you continue to pay the full Regent’s University London tuition fee to Regent's while abroad, not to your host institution. You should complete online enrolment as normal.
During your term abroad, you continue to be a registered Regent’s student and have access to all online learning resources available on Blackboard. While abroad you will receive academic and administrative support from Regent’s staff as well as receiving local support at our partner – your host institution. Students receive Regent's credits upon successful completion of their studies abroad. We will keep in regular contact with you to ensure that your time abroad is enjoyable and successful.
Where can I go?
We work with partner institutions across the globe to provide Regent's students with study abroad opportunities in your subject area. Students can research their SPA options below sorted by country, programme or language.
Please note that Liberal Studies students can attend any one of our partner institutions at any of the destinations listed, subject to the availability of suitable corresponding core modules for your major at Regent's.
For more advice on your SPA options, please don't hesitate to contact the IPO.
