MEETING THE TEAM

The Study Abroad Team is based in the International Office, University House. However we have a restricted amount of space and dropping into meet us is impracticable. For this reason the team hold ‘drop-in’ sessions. A schedule of these sessions will be provided at the Welcome Meeting.

You will be required to complete your module selection on the Universities online system (e-MR) by the end of the 3rd week of the Autumn Term.
