Study abroad students on a trip to Stonehenge

Study abroad students explore famous English landmarks, Bath and Stonehenge

As part of the study abroad programme here at Brighton, taking students on trips are a fantastic opportunity to immerse students in UK culture.

What is study abroad? 

Study abroad gives international students the chance to experience both life and study in the UK for either a year or semester. It’s popular with students who want to embark on new challenges, gain new skills and stand out to employers back home.

Bath and Stonehenge  

Our study abroad programme offers many trips as a chance to take a break from studying and explore historic England.

The weekend trip to Bath and Stonehenge take students to Bath, Salisbury, Bristol and the iconic English Heritage landmark, Stonehenge.

As some of the UK’s most recognisable locations, this trip encompasses a visit to the only city in the UK to be named a World Heritage Site – Bath. The city’s renowned Roman Baths, grand architecture and history make for an interesting trip for our students.

What did the weekend look like?  

Students arrived into the picturesque city of Bath on Saturday to explore the cobbled streets, beautiful architecture and the stunning river Avon.

There was the opportunity to visit some amazing places like the Jane Austen Centre of England’s most famous novelist, Bath Abbey, or explore the city by boat.  

Students had plenty of downtime, which they used to visit shops, try the many restaurant options and of course take some pictures for Instagram in the iconic streets of Bath.

The following day, students were up bright and early for the next part of their journey – Stonehenge. In very non-typical English fashion, the sun was shining making for ideal visiting weather, and students were able to see one of the UK and the world’s biggest phenomenon’s up close and personal.  

Stonehenge has fascinated the world for centuries with is creation dating back to circa 3000BC and 1600BC. Its circular structure has been said to be linked to midsummer solstice and display an amazing feat of early engineering.  

This trip is just one of the varieties offered through study abroad. Our student-focused programme provides many enriching activities and personal development opportunities.

Study abroad is a great way to gain new perspectives and diversify your academic journey.

We are so pleased everyone had a great time and it was perfect timing for the British springtime to make an appearance!
