UCL Study Abroad Fair - 3 November

27 October 2011

Students interested in studying abroad as part of their UCL degree are invited to this year's annual Study Abroad Fair on Thursday 3 November. This event is open to all UCL students, not just those studying a language.

Attendees will have a chance to talk to returning students about their experiences, as well as meeting students from overseas institutions who are currently studying at UCL. Members of the UCL Study Abroad Team will also be on hand to answer questions and offer advice to students thinking of undertaking a placement abroad.

Anthony Grout (UCL Study Abroad Team) explained: “Studying abroad offers exposure to a different cultural and academic environment. Spending a prolonged period in another country can be challenging and rewarding, helping to improve self-confidence and give students the chance to hone a variety of skills which are highly regarded by employers."

"This fair is a great opportunity to meet other students who have already benefited from studying abroad, and to talk to overseas students currently doing a placement here at UCL. The Study Abroad programme is just one of the ways that UCL prepares its students to become global citizens who are culturally aware, willing to embrace leadership, ambitious yet ethical and professionally mobile.”

UCL’s Study Abroad Team provides a number of additional services for students, including preparation guides, briefings and information sessions for studying abroad. It also coordinates UCL’s exchange programmes and provides help and advice on issues like accommodation and financial support.

The Study Abroad Fair will take place in the South Cloisters from 5-7pm on Thursday 3 November. For more information, please visit the link below.
