During your Study Abroad year
If you have an emergency overseas please get in touch with the University of Leeds as soon as possible.
You may have chosen a particlaur expensive country to live in or require more money for trips and excursions. This is now an opportunity to get work experience or take up a part time job. Working abroad can give you some great skills allowing you to enhance communication and interpersonal skills. These will be requested of you in any job interview. There are plenty of opportunities to work abroad. You can spend some time working abroad – whether it’s short-term or part of your longer-term career plans.
We want you to stay safe and have a rewarding experience, wherever you are going in the world! Living abroad means adapting to a new environment, new lifestyle, new culture, as with any form of travel these things can affect your health and safety.
