A new report from Universities UK has shown that students who go abroad are more likely to have better outcomes in both academic and employment measures.

Gone International: Rising Aspirations compares the academic and employment outcomes of undergraduate students who spent time studying, working or volunteering abroad as part of their degree with those who did not.

Over the past five years, the series of reports has demonstrated a trend that students who go abroad are more likely to have better outcomes in both academic and employment measures, achieving better degrees and better jobs.

This year’s report shows that more students than ever before, and more students from disadvantaged and underrepresented groups, are going abroad.

At Richmond, we provide access to education on a global scale, with study centres based in the heart of Rome and Florence, where students can enjoy a cultural experience alongside their academic studies.

We also offer students the opportunity to study abroad with our partners in New York, Shanghai, Australia, New Zealand, Athens, Brussels, Paris, Florida, Buenos Aires, South Korea and many more places around the world.

Students are able to study for a summer, a semester or a full year abroad and then transfer all their credits back to Richmond to complete their degree, all without the need to pay for expensive international fees or adding time to their programme.  This gives students an exciting international experience to help them seek employment after graduation.
