Study in the UK for the Experience of a Lifetime

Dual Award students have have the opportunity to study at our partner university, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) in Wales, part of the UK. The study abroad period will usually take place during level 5 (semesters 3 & 4). The mobility programme fee is GBP 3500.

You will study at one of UWTSD’s attractive campuses based in Swansea; your programme will determine at which campus you will be based.

Studying abroad may be one of the most beneficial experiences for you as a university student. You get the opportunity to study in a foreign nation and take in the culture of a new land. When you return home, you will return with a new perspective on culture, language skills, a great education, and a willingness to learn. Needless to say, all of these are very attractive to future employers.
