LAUREN OLVER WORK EXPERIENCE, SRI LANKA —

It motivated me to ask more questions on a daily basis and be more aware of how my actions can make a difference. From the profession I choose to the people I meet, and how these actions can benefit my overall understanding of myself…I loved every experience the course has given me and the support the staff and lecturers gave me to further my curiosity.

Why study abroad? Taking a trip abroad is one of the most valuable experiences you can have in your undergraduate career. It is not only the adventure of a lifetime; students who go abroad get better grades, earn higher degrees, and are more likely to gain employment after graduation according to research by Universities UK. The Go Global team provide opportunities to study, work, and undertake research worldwide throughout your time at the University. They are here to provide support from start to finish.

Study abroad Semester abroad with Erasmus+ and Exchange We have a number of partner universities across the world. During your second year as an Undergraduate student, you could spend one semester studying at one of them. You can study in Europe as part of the Erasmus+ programme or overseas in an International Exchange. Doing a semester abroad is an excellent opportunity to experience education in a different country, immerse yourself in a new culture, and learn a new language.

TO BE ELIGIBLE YOU NEED TO... • • •

achieve a 2:1 average grade in your first year of Undergraduate studies, apply by 31 January 2019 to be able to study abroad for one semester in your second year of Undergraduate degree, apply for the same or a similar subject at our partner university that you’re studying at Bath Spa.

  thehub.bathspa.ac.uk/semesterabroad

What support is available to me?

Do I need to speak another language?

Will the placement impact my final grade?

To help you with the process, our Go Global team will: • provide you with semesteronly accommodation during your second year at Bath Spa University, • offer pre-departure and returners sessions, • offer continuous one-to-one coaching and advice, should you need it.

Most partner universities teach in English. However, in some countries, such as Mexico, Japan and Taiwan you’ll be expected to have some knowledge of the language. Additional language classes are usually provided by our partner universities.

The placement will not impact on your final grade, however, students who go abroad are more likely to earn higher degrees. You’ll need to complete the equivalent of 60 Bath Spa University credits during your semester abroad, but no actual grades will be transferred – the placement is pass or fail.

It’s an extra-curricular course that you can take alongside your degree for all three years of your undergraduate studies. You don’t need to have any background experience, just enthusiasm and interest in developing your understanding and building your skills as a global citizen.   The Certificate is awarded in addition to your degree. You start in your first year, and it does not change your degree title or your final results. Rather, The Certificate complements your studies by adding an international, interdisciplinary perspective to your studies which will build your confidence, transferable skills and make your CV stand out from the crowd.   bathspa.ac.uk/courses/intl-global-citizenship      GlobalCitizneship@bathspa.ac.uk
