The four schools from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science; ULMS, School of the Arts, Law and Social Justice and HLC (Histories, Languages and Culture) have come together to create Study Abroad Week!

Study Abroad Week is a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more information about the study abroad options and places you can go, that are specific to your programme!

Each school has a full week of activities including skype sessions with particular partners so you can find out more about the different universities, the study abroad experience and ask questions to your future hosts!

We have workshops to help you submit the best application possible for the Semester Abroad, Summer Abroad and the unique, Year in China; and if you still have questions, come to the daily drop in sessions with Study Abroad Officers covering all of the schools, in the ULMS Atrium from 3pm.

End the week on a high and come along for some free pizza and drinks, and speak with some of our former study abroad students about their experiences.
