Go Global

Go Global is our trips programme for students to visit exciting destinations worldwide, organised by the International Office.

Our trips within Europe are open to Home, EU and International students. Trips to destinations outside of Europe are open to UK and EU passport-holding students only.

Applications for our Go Global summer trips are now closed. Our next set of trips will be advertised during autumn/winter 2019.

The Go Global package includes: Students are responsible for:
  • Travel and accommodation
  • Visa (if required for travel)
  • Basic language classes
  • Talks on history and culture
  • Tours and visits to historic sites
  • Opportunities to meet and mix with local students
  • A taste of authentic cuisine
  • Time to explore on your own
  • Purchasing travel insurance
  • Obtaining any travel medications and injections
  • Making their own way to and from UK airports

Go Global has been devised to be part academic study and part cultural experience allowing plenty of time to explore independently as well as meet and mix with native students.

The University launched the programme in 2013. The first Go Global project was an offer for Home and EU students to take the opportunity to attend a two-week Summer School run by one of our international partner universities.

In 2014 we offered even more students the chance to go to China. Since then the project has grown considerably and we have now travelled to:

  • China (various locations)
  • Vietnam
  • India
  • New York City
  • Malaysia and Singapore
  • Dubai
  • Mauritius
