Have you ever thought about studying in a different country? Or maybe doing a work placement abroad?
Through studying or working abroad, you can study at some of the world’s most prestigious Universities, enhance your future employability, and broaden your global network. Not only does studying/ working abroad improve your future job prospects, it can also enhance your own personal development, allowing you to gain independence and giving you the opportunity to make new friends from all over the world.
If you are thinking of going abroad as part of your degree, or you’d like a bit more information about the study and work opportunities available to you, make sure you don’t miss the Go Abroad Fair.
The fair will take place on Thursday 24 October 2019, between 11am and 4pm in University Place.
At the Fair, you’ll get the chance to find out about the different types of international opportunities available – as well as Study Abroad there’s loads more you can do, such as International Volunteering and Summer School programmes.
You’ll be able to find out more about certain countries through our country-specific stands. At the stands, there will be also be final year students who have just returned there to talk to you and give you a first-hand account of their experiences abroad.
You’ll also be able to talk to the International Exchange Society, the Careers Service and the Confucius Institute for advice on student finance and funding, as well as tables where you can get advice on how to fund your time abroad. Find out more about the upcoming fair here.
If you’d like to hear what previous Manchester students have to say about their time abroad, check out the Manchester on the Road blog, where our Global Ambassadors who have studied all over the world share their experience of being abroad.
As well as previous students sharing what they thought of their own experiences, they also share their advice for some difficulties you may face whilst abroad, from financial difficulties, to homesickness and making a brand new set of friends.
