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 sharing what they thought of their own experiences, they also offer advice for some of the difficulties you may face whilst away: from finances, to homesickness and making a brand new set of friends.
