Fairly often I see students who have ideas for a project abroad – eg SLV (Sri Lanka Volunteers) for psychology students looking to gain more clinical experience (read about one student’s experience here), linguistics students volunteering on TEFL projects in a variety of countries, philosophy students wanting to attend conferences on Model United Nations etc etc. All these ideas and projects are great for both personal and professional development. However, sometimes finance is a stumbling block to these ideas getting off the ground.
So did you know about the University funds to help facilitate your global aspirations – including the Principal’s Go Abroad fund, and more? Tying in nicely with the University’s global outlook, the International office administer several funds you can apply to if you have ideas for a project abroad, but need help with the funding. Check out what’s on offer here – including:
- funding opportunities,
- ideas for taking your experience abroad,
- how to apply,
- and more
If your work or project is in Europe – you’ve got even more opportunity for funds – via the Erasmus+ funding for placements and internships.
Check out opportunities for experience and funding via the International Office website. And if you want to identify your own opportunity, we’ve very handily tagged relevant opportunities on MyCareerHub – check them out with a search using keyword ‘Erasmus’. Plus use the International Experiences section of our website for more ideas.
