Where can I find more information on studying abroad?
Have you decided where you want to study abroad yet? If you had the chance to come along to the Study Abroad Fair, hopefully it has given you a flavour for all you different options!
But if you couldn’t make it, don’t worry. Here is a list of handy online links to find more information on studying abroad.
1. School Factsheets
See if you’re eligible to study abroad with the School/Department factsheet.
2. On-Campus Presentations
Once you know what your options are, come along to our presentations on Wednesdays to learn more about your options. These presentations are designed to give you more information on the application process and your options. There are also Q&A opportunities with staff and Peer Advisers at the end of the presentation.
3. Drop In Sessions
Do you have specific questions about a particular region, university, financial issues or the application process? Come along to our drop in sessions from 1:30-3:30pm at the International Office (Jubilee Campus) every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday until the end of term. A study abroad Peer Adviser will be at each session, come at any time and ask any questions that you may have, or just have a chat about their experience abroad!
A piece of advice is to go to the drop in session that is more relevant to you, in terms the degree or country/university that relates to you.
4. Finance Information
Find out more about the tuition fee reduction, student loans, automatic and means-tested bursaries and destination-specific scholarships and bursaries on our Finance Information page.

6. Email Peer Advisers
Still have specific questions that the FAQ doesn’t answer? No worries! Find out who our Peer Advisers are and drop them an email. They will do their best to answer any questions you may have on studying abroad.

Beyond the resources that we’ve provided, you can always go onto the websites of the universities that you’re interested in to find more information about the modules, location, style of teaching, and accommodation. A link is provided on each of our Partner University Factsheets.
