The multicultural experience of the programme is enhanced by the composition of the group of students that travels around the world together. Each group comprises students from all parts of the world. Most students have experience studying or working abroad, and have studied a range of disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political science, area studies and international relations.
Students are assisted with finding accommodation in each location and obtaining visas. If you have questions regarding everyday life in any of the locations please contact us.
