Experiential Learning Abroad

Opportunities to undertake experiential learning abroad are available through the University's Work Based Learning unit, who can help arrange trips to a range of stimulating destinations, such as China, Argentina, Morocco and Dubai.  If you prefer, you may arrange your own placement; this can work well if you already have a working relationship with an appropriate organisation, for example, through volunteering.  Alternatively, you may seek to gain practical experience of community based development work overseas. This could be organised for you through the International Office/Study Abroad which has well-established links between the University and partner organisations. You may select from a variety of projects in South Africa, Romania, Uganda and Costa Rica and this provides you with an ideal opportunity to travel with friends and gain experience of very different communities to our own.
