Aims

A 'learning experience' is not just restricted to academic situations like a degree scheme, 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

Students are expected to reflect on the ways in which they are learning the language and adapting to the culture of their country of residence abroad and how they are developing skills from the University’s Graduate Skills Framework over the course of their Year Abroad, using the ePortfolio as a tool to carry out this reflection and as a platform of exchange with their Personal Tutor.
