  • The year abroad is not just for linguists! There is an absolutely HUGE range of UK university courses for scientists, humanists, artists and mathematicians which include a year abroad.

  • I’m the first to admit that I wish I’d taken a year abroad. I took a gap year before university, and I went on to use every possible opportunity to travel in uni holidays etc, but it’s not quite the same thing.

  • An exciting thing happened today. There I was, innocently Twittering away about the magnificent entrepreneurial MADE Festival I attended yesterday, when all of a sudden I was presented with a challenge. This was the sort of challenge I have been unwittingly preparing myself for since I launched ThirdYearAbroad.com last year, and boy was I up for it.

  • Virtual reading: Kindle review

    Monday, 19 September 2011
    Packing for my stay in Mexico, I realised something: aside from the fact I’d have to pick which shoes/dresses/hair products to bring, I’d also have to make a tough decision regarding which literature I could fit (carry) in my two suitcases. Yes, hand luggage was still an option, but my bag was already bulging with my laptop, charger, camera, passport and important documents, a couple of packets of sweets (no Percy Pigs in the airport), my over-filled diary and more clutter I care to recall. What to bring? How do you pick between Molière’s dramatic comedy, Ruiz Zafón’s page-turning novels and Pratchett’s sarcastic fantasy? What about all the other loves in my life, the Arabic classic literature, the socio-economic tirades of South America, the sharp wit of America’s finest authors, or the Renaissance literature of Britain?

  • If you are considering doing an undergraduate degree at a UK university, it is quite likely that you have the option to study abroad whatever your degree course!

    (here are 100 reasons to study abroad, to remind you why it's so important to go...) 

    Some universities are much more flexible and open to this than others though, so it's very important that you know your options before you apply - you don't want to get a nasty surprise in second year as your university prevents you from having the best year of your life!

  • I'm the first to admit that I don't really use my Italian language skills in my job. I'd love to - but I don't. However, that's not to say I don't use what I learnt during my Italian degree every day. My year abroad in Italy and understanding of the language introduced me not only to Italian food, art and culture but to a relaxed, happy approach to life (in the sense that if you enjoy what you do each day, you will get a huge amount out of it) and effectively a new way of thinking, all of which has changed me for the better and is thanks to my language degree.
