Semester 2 Credit Value: 50
ECTS Credits: 50.0


A 'learning experience' is not restricted to academic situations like a degree programme, but can include any situation in which students may be involved during the Year Abroad. The problems confronted in registering at university abroad, teaching in a classroom for the first time, or adapting to work in an office environment can all be regarded as learning experiences. Employers are very interested in people who can manage their own learning and use their experiences to improve what they do in this way.

Outline Of Syllabus

The module asks students to reflect upon and become more aware of the ways in whcih they are learning the language of their country of residence abroad and to become more sensitive to the ways in which they are adapting to society and culture. The ePortfolio blogs are designed to reflect and support your learning experiences in order to help you learn more efficiently.
