Student exchanges

Pre-departure sessions

Compulsory pre-departure information sessions for outgoing exchange and traineeship students take place each year.

Pre-departure sessions provide students with general information about travel,  insurance, risk and emergency, as well as signposting support available to students undertaking overseas activities.

All students who plan to travel abroad to undertake a study or work placement will be required to attend a pre-departure session, and attendance will be taken at each event.
