If your son/daughter is considering one of our global opportunities, we have created this webpage to help you feel confident in their decision.
Sending your son/daughter off overseas can be daunting. An overseas exchange, work or voluntary programme might be the first time they've traveled abroad without you, or it might be the first time they've been overseas at all.
If you have any questions about the different global opportunities available, you should encourage your son/daughter to contact us.
Going abroad is an empowering experience that should be embraced by students in every aspect – from initial enquiry, through to choosing a destination and getting on the plane.
The Global Opportunities Team exists to offer support and guidance to students throughout this exciting journey. However, it’s important for everyone involved to remember that this is a partnership and the team can only fulfil their duties if everyone has played their part. Ultimately, we want all our students to have a fantastic time abroad and we will always do our best to help.
The topics below are the most common worries that we find parents/supporters communicate through their son or daughter. We hope that by providing this detailed information it will help you to feel confident in their decision to participate in this life-enriching experience.
It is important to remember that the University is an adult learning environment. Under Data Protection Law, we cannot give out information to you (or any third parties) about your son or daughter. If you are very worried, you can call and give us information about your concerns and we will respond accordingly but please be aware that we won’t, however, be able to discuss how we will respond.
