Useful Resources


The UCL Student Support website is a useful source of support while you are abroad.

The website includes advice pages on various student issues and also has an online student support group that uses peer support to provide help.

Useful UCL Contacts

FCO Travel Advice Pages

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office's travel advice pages are full of useful, detailed and up-to-date information, as well as containing contact details for your nearest British Embassy or Consulate.

FCO Social Media Updates

In May 2013, the FCO Locate service was replaced by a range of social media channels dedicated to Travel Advice and overseas crisis support for UK citizens.

Students abroad are now advised to subscribe to email travel updates for the country they are going to be resident in via the FCO website.

You can also follow updates from the FCO via Facebook and on Twitter (@fcotravel). There may also be a UK consular Twitter for your host country - please visit consular websites for details.

Study Abroad Handbook

The Study Abroad Handbook contains invaluable information. All students going abroad should receive a copy. If you do not have one please download one.


The UCL Students Abroad Moodle course contains a variety of resources and information relating to your study abroad placement.

It is also a useful tool to help you keep track of the forms and documents you are required to return to UCL over the course of your year abroad.
