This “virtual exchange” will enable you to:

  • Explore new cultures and global perspectives
  • Work on group projects and make contacts with students abroad
  • Access lectures by international experts and scholars
  • Prepare for future international education or work
  • Gain professional skills such as intercultural competence and digital literacy

“I would not have had the opportunity to interact with students in other countries without this project during my degree. [It was] really valuable to hear these perspectives straight from the students.”
