Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology

Studying and training abroad

The international focus constitutes a major element of our programme. The projects, courses and training we offer have an international dimension and encourage you to adopt a global outlook. You will have the opportunity to join various educational excursions abroad. Previous destinations have included Belgium, Hungary and Finland.

International experience

A global outlook is really at the heart of ESSET. That’s why you are required to complete at least one of the following three abroad; your year 3 work placement assignment, your year 4 exchange minor or your year 4 graduation project. We have a network of more than 100 contacts and contracts with educational facilities, scientific centres, companies, organisations and institutions worldwide that you can tap into.

Our students have taken on assignments or participated in exchange minors in countries such as Japan, Brazil, India, South Africa, the Seychelles, Ecuador, Canada, Germany, Spain, Finland, Ireland, Indonesia, Thailand, China, Aruba, Costa Rica, Hungary, New Zealand, France and Australia. The list of locations and opportunities is constantly growing.
