Handbooks and guidance

Handbooks, checklists, forms and information you will need before and during your study abroad.

Before setting off on your study abroad, make sure you've returned the forms you need to and that you have a copy of the Handbook. You can access the Handbook below, but it's a good idea to have a printed copy or a saved electronic file if you're going to a country with unreliable internet connectivity.
