Optional Study Abroad modules

Study abroad for 3 weeks on European Art History or Creative Industries London.

Why take an optional module?

  • Works well for students studying abroad on our Integrated Study Abroad programmes either before their programme, or during the Easter break.
  • Gain a professional insight into the creative industries or European art history.
  • Visits to places of interest in London (and Berlin for European Art History) with your experienced tutor and other study abroad students.
  • A great way to meet other students and discovering new places.
  • You don't need to be enrolled on other Study Abroad programmes to apply, so it works well for a J-Term or May-mester.
