Study abroad applications: Administrative burden or opportunity for learning?

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

Uppsala University begins, at the application stage, to support students in maximising their study abroad experience by identifying their own potential competences. When applying for a programme with the international office, students must articulate how the activity they are applying for will contribute to their future employability. Making students look to the future and consider how their skillset should be improved changes the application from being a burden to an opportunity for learning.
