Contact your School

Every School has at least one dedicated Exchange Coordinator - this is a member of academic staff who will be a key contact for academic and pastoral support throughout your exchange.  

The Student Support Officer(s) within your School will also provide pastoral support for you during your exchange and you are also expected to remain in contact with your Personal Tutor throughout your exchange and keep them updated on your progress.

We also run a Facebook group. This group is a hub for past, present and future students to network and share in their experience of studying abroad on exchange. This is where you can find out about the application process and get advice from other students on your destination, accommodation, finances and much more!
