Visiting and exchange students can also contact one of our Global Opportunities Academic Advisors

Every department has a Global Opportunities Academic Advisor (GOAA) who can advise you about the academic side of Study Abroad. Students who have been accepted on to Study Abroad must discuss their module choices with their IOAA. You can see the GOAA for your subject area(s) below (note that students of Combined Honours, Joint Honours or Major/Minor programmes must get approval from the GOAAs for both subject areas).
