Event Programme

To help you get the specialised information you need for your subject area we have divided the programme into Go Abroad Information, Student Ambassador Sessions and Subject Area Drop-in Sessions.

The information sessions in the morning will give you more information on the different study programmes both short-term and long-term, work opportunities, the application process, and new funding opportunities.  Each session will have a short presentation from the team and a Q&A.

Go Abroad Student ambassadors will be online to offer you tips on finding the right host university, subject matching, securing accommodation, being on exchange during COVID, and tips on what research you need to complete when submitting your application.

The afternoon sessions allow you to chat with the Go Abroad team as well as subject coordinators who can help you understand what opportunities are available to you in your subject area.

See below for more information and session times.
