If you're visiting this page, then you probably have an offer to go abroad with Queen Mary. Congratulations! You've made a great decision to enhance your Queen Mary degree with an experience overseas on one of our programmes.
Each programme offers pre-departure guidance and information that varies depending on which programme on which you will go abroad. For example: pre-departure presentations, email guidance, handbooks, forms to complete prior to departure.
It is highly recommended that you attend any Pre-Departure briefing, workshop or event that you are invited to attend (either by the Global Opportunities Office or your academic school/department) - not only are these a great way to get information from us and prepare for your exchange, but they are also also an opportunitiy to ask us questions and meet other students going abroad on the same programme. Attending these will also save you time and questions (and avoid potential misunderstandings) down the line as you prepare for your departure.
Please ensure you read all information you receive from us and your host institution or organisation carefully and complete all actions. It is your responsibility to ensure you are well prepared for your time abroad by following our guidance.
Here are a few useful tips to get you started:
The list above is a start, but not an exhaustive list. Please ensure you do research about your programme and destination and contact us if you have any queries. A full list of Global Opportunities Staff can be found on our Contact Us webpage.
