The overseas trips are subsidised with a bursary and open up a whole new raft of opportunities to enhance the student experience and add to CVs.

All experiences will take place between January and April next year. Applications opened today and the deadline to apply for the overseas trips is 9am on Monday 21 October. The deadline for signing up to the Intercultural Awareness Certificate is 9am on Monday 14 October.
