What our students say

I went on three international trips in three years! During my first year, I worked on a group project with Laurea University as part of my Add+vantage module. Following my amazing experience in Finland, I also worked on another international project in Germany. And after that, I decided that I would choose the study abroad option during my third year. I was chosen by Coventry University to represent the university at Concordia University of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada which is one of the university’s many international partners.

Connor Riddlesden Mathematics BSc (Hons)

To anyone unsure whether to go on placement or not, I would say go for it – particularly if you’re considering completing one abroad! I’ve boosted my confidence so much by throwing myself into situations that I would never have put myself in before. Travelling halfway around the world for three months at a time was a terrifying thought, but the opportunities that arose were incomparable and it is an experience that will last a lifetime.
