Sheffield Students Studying Abroad

All of our undergraduate students have the opportunity to study law abroad for a year as part of their course.

For some degrees, a year abroad is a compulsory part of the degree:

  • LLB Law (European and International) – study law abroad in English, and you'll be given priority for destination choice from any one of our 60+ partner institutions.
  • LLB Law with, French Law, German Law, or Spanish Law – study in the relevant language at one of our partner universities in France, Belgium, Germany or Spain.

If you enrol on LLB Law, or LLB Law and Criminology you can apply during your second year of studies to transfer to the LLB Law (with a year abroad) or LLB Law and Criminology (with a year abroad) and spend year 3 abroad, returning to complete your degree at Sheffield in year 4. 

You don't have to decide right now, and there are always plenty of destinations to go to. Once you begin your studies with us you'll be invited to attend our study abroad information sessions, usually held in November/December.

Further information

Information will be made available to students during the year. If you are a prospective student or currently studying at the School of Law, you can contact the Student Experience Officer (International Exchanges), Steph Symonds at, with questions at any time.
