  • Meeting students who have recently returned from foreign placements is a fantastic way to kickstart your year abroad research and enthusiasm - you can ask your burning questions and see their excitement (or not?) for the destination you're considering. International Office staff are on hand to explain your options, and it's also useful to hear from visiting graduate speakers and careers advisors who will help you get your head in the game. We are working with Routes into Languages to put together listings of upcoming events and activities to inform you about studying and working abroad during your degree course, but please do get in touch if you have any events to add to the list!

    Wednesday, 26 February 2014

    Today, as you'll know from my previous entry, there was an Erasmus meeting scheduled which was designed for us to discuss finance and applying to our Universities of choice; unfortunately this didn't go to plan. Due to a clerical error, the date of the meeting (Wednesday, 26th February), was incorrect, and was actually supposed to take a place a month later.
