Find out more about Study Abroad

The Study Abroad Information Sessions are aimed at those people who are considering an optional year abroad as part of their programme of study. It is a chance for you to find out about the practicalities of the year abroad, from the application right through to departure, your time away and your return to UCL.

The purpose of the session is to give more in depth information to those students who may be interested in going away, to help find out whether it is something that would suit them.

Your Global Career

We know that for many of you your time abroad will have been an important learning curve, providing experiences which may shape your future. In order to help you do this, we have put together a special session specifically for Study Abroad students which aims to show you how you can formalise these experiences to enrich your CV and interview responses.

As well as information from UCL Careers, you will also have the chance to hear from graduate employer Unilever about the kinds of things they're looking for in a global graduate, and learn about volunteering opportunities which can help you build on your experiences from the VSU. We will also welcome back some of our study abroad alumni, who will be on hand to talk about their own careers and do some networking.
