Study abroad with HSBC International

Whether you are a parent considering sending your child abroad to study, a current student looking to study overseas, or you've recently graduated, you can be confident you'll get the international banking support you need with HSBC.

Navigating the emotional journey of moving to a new country can be challenging. At HSBC, we believe that studying abroad shouldn’t mean sacrificing your sense of belonging and that’s why we've teamed up with Virat Kohli to surprise Indian students in the UK with a game of gully cricket – a lovely reminder of home, and a wonderful way to create a new sense of belonging with other students. Watch the video to see their reactions!
