Preparing to go


A period of study or work abroad is probably one of the most challenging opportunities that a student undertakes during their university life. It is also one of the most rewarding.

Many employers view a period of study or work abroad favourably, as it demonstrates that a candidate is not afraid of challenges, is adaptable, and is able to build relationships with people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.

This website aims to provide you with the information and guidance that you need to prepare for your time overseas and to make the most of your experience once you are abroad.

We strongly recommend that you browse the resources provided by Student Support to increase your resilience when navigating the potential challenges of planning for your time abroad:
