ThirdYearAbroad.com is a one-stop-shop for all things year abroad. The site provides up-to-date information, help and advice on everything from where to go to and the study and employment options available, to finding accommodation and recommended places to visit. Previous and current year abroad students contribute to the website by submitting their personal 'Mole Diaries’, and students preparing to depart can discuss any anxieties with fellow members of the ThirdYearAbroad.com community, which is also active on Facebook and Twitter. In essence, the website provides year abroad students with everything their predecessors wish they had known before jetting off!
The ThirdYearAbroad.com team, led by founder of the site Lizzie Fane, is active within university language departments nationwide. The team travels to attend study abroad fairs, language events and to meet and offer advice to students before they depart for their year abroad and when they return. ThirdYearAbroad.com is the perfect forum for students to share their experiences, connect with others heading to the same destination, offer advice and help each other make the most of their time abroad. The site can also be a reassuring and helpful tool for parents and relatives of year abroad students who have worries or questions that need to be answered.
In support of the aims and values of ThirdYearAbroad.com, Collins, Europe’s leading bilingual dictionary publisher, has come on board to prepare students with what they need for their year abroad in terms of essential language resources. To launch the partnership, Collins is offering a 30% off discount on dictionaries and essential language learning titles for French, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese via their website and on http://www.thirdyearabroad.
Collins is also providing free language learning content for students, which will feature in e-newsletters and articles and provide need-to-know help on such things as; how to write a CV, how to address emails, and essential terms for banking abroad. In addition, Collins and ThirdYearAbroad.com will be running regular competitions and give-aways within the member community.
In partnership, Collins and ThirdYearAbroad.com are committed to equip students with all the essential information, advice and language resources they require to have an enjoyable, exciting and rewarding year abroad.
