Go Abroad

Pre-departure Information Sessions 2023

We are currently organising regional pre-departure information sessions for students going abroad in the 2024/25 academic year and will publish details here once confirmed.

The pre-departure meetings are intended to supplement your own research. There are many very individualised factors relating to your placement that you will need to research and prepare for. The Global Opportunities Outbound SharePoint page is available to view here.

Please find the dates and times for the regional pre-departure sessions below. The sessions are for students studying abroad in the 2023/24 academic year. The information sessions will be in-person, on campus.
