Before you go
Read through the relevant pre-departure information to help you prepare for your placement.
Before you go abroad it is important to ensure you plan each aspect of your time away and think well in advance about funding, accommodation and visas.
The task that often takes the most time is obtaining a visa, so you should find out the process for your host country and apply as soon as you have obtained approval from your School for your placement.
To study abroad legally you will normally need to apply for and obtain the relevant student visa or residence permit for your host country.
Housing arrangements vary from country to country. Try to make your arrangements early to avoid stress on arrival.
Staying safe and well
While there is always some inherent risk with any kind of travel, there are a number of steps that you can take to help you keep healthy and safe.
Sustainability and climate-conscious travel
Guidance to help you consider the sustainability impacts of your travel and activities abroad.

Any academic questions or matters linked to placement will be handled within your school.
