Poster session 121

Pre-departure peer coaching for confidence and preparedness

  • Wednesday 12 Sept
  • Exhibition, Level 2, Poster session area

This poster describes the design and implementation of a peer-coaching programme that aims to support students in addressing a range of concerns they may have prior to studying abroad. Once students have understood the basic guidelines for acting as a pre-departure peer coach, they become able to support one another in readying themselves to study abroad by taking specific actions and by simply sharing worries and uncertainties in a supportive environment.
