Academic Support for Study Abroad
Each school has a School Study Abroad Coordinator, who is your main contact for academic advice relating to your study abroad year.
You will need to find your accommodation abroad yourself, but there are several resources that can help you.
Handbooks and documents
Handbooks, checklists, forms and information you will need before and during your study abroad.
Make sure you've got the right insurance. For some countries and universities you must purchase a local health insurance policy on top of your University of Leeds insurance, plus any top-up cover you may choose to buy.
Improving your language skills and fluency is one of the benefits of study abroad, but be prepared to put in some work before you go and once you've arrived.

This agreement explains the actions and responsibilities you, your school and the Study Abroad Office agree to.
