On my off days we visited archaeological sites such as Knossos, went to a conference on ancient DNA, and went scuba diving in the crystal blue water. Without the Principal’s Go Abroad fund it would have been impossible for me to participate in this fantastic academic opportunity and I would not have visited Crete, a fascinating island with rich local customs and values.
In 2018, successful candidates needed to...
- Present a strong and compelling proposal for their intended activity
- Show the extent to which they will benefit (academically and personally) from both the funding and the international experience
- Demonstrate their potential to successfully represent the University of Edinburgh while abroad
By applying, all applicants agree to participate in the new peer-assessment portion of the marking process. This requires each applicant to assess five applications according to these criteria.
