Year 3

In an increasingly globalised world, a period of international study is a major benefit and can help you to stand out in a crowded job market. All of our business degrees offer you the option of spending your third year studying abroad at one of our international partner universities. This is an opportunity to develop foreign language skills, experience another country and learn about its culture as well as adding an international dimension to your overall employability.

You may decide to study at one of our exchange universities for a full-year study placement period in your third year of study and this then becomes the third year of a four year degree.

Opportunities for study abroad have in the past included Australia, Canada, Chile, China/Hong Kong, Columbia, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, Sweden and USA. Funding is available for EU students travelling to EU countries through the ERASMUS scheme. Other funding opportunities (open to both EU and non-EU students) may also be available through scholarships offered by the host institution, the British Council and/or other funding bodies. For up to date information on locations and funding, please go to /international/studyabroad

The Study Abroad year fees are set annually by the University – fees are % of the annual tuition fee. Any fees displayed are for guidance only. For the definitive amount of the Study Abroad year fees payable please contact

The offer of a place on a ‘study abroad’ degree does not imply that Durham University Business School guarantees to place the student with one of its partner institutions, nor a partner of the student’s choice. All study abroad programmes are subject to approval by the Business School. Some partner relationships have restricted access and so are not available to all students. The Business School, in association with the University, will assist students in applying for a study abroad place, but it is the responsibility of the student to apply for such a place, and the right of the Business School/University to allocate students to available places as it deems best. In the event that a student is unable to obtain a study abroad place, transfer to the equivalent ‘non-study abroad’ programme is guaranteed provided the student is eligible to transfer on academic grounds. In line with Home Office rules, students from outside the EU will transfer onto the ‘with study abroad’ programme only once they have successfully secured a placement (normally at the end of their second year of study). Therefore due to visa requirements, we recommend that international students interested in the study abroad year as part of their degree apply for this programme when making their application to us via UCAS.

Year 4

Moving to a more research-led teaching orientation in the third year, you are required to produce a double module Dissertation in area of accounting and management. Additionally, you will study three compulsory modules exploring:

  • Contemporary Issues in Financial Accounting
  • Contemporary Issues in Management
  • Financial Planning and Control

And choose one module from a selection which in previous years have included, for example:

  • Corporate Governance
  • Strategic Management
  • Corporate Entrepreneurship.
  • Leadership
  • Islamic Economics and Finance
  • Historical Studies in Accounting
  • Real Estate Finance
  • A Foreign Language.
