HE Guidance: Study Abroad as Part of Your Degree With Annie Kay & Current Students From University of East Anglia

3rd March 2022 @ 15:35 - 16:20



Looking for ways to maximise the potential of a university degree?

Whether looking to study Physics, Politics, Environmental Science, or Creative Writing, for example, this Study Abroad session will introduce students to the benefits of adding an international element to their degree.

Evidence shows that studying abroad has a positive impact on future employability, helping students develop the initiative, independence and soft skills that impress employers.

In this session, students who have spent part of their degree abroad will talk about their experience and what they’ve gained from it.

Session Structure:

  • Introduction (‘what is studying abroad?’)
  • Student Experience (hearing from a returned student)
  • Student Experience (hearing from a student who is currently abroad)
  • Q & A


Lecturer Profile: Annie Kay is the Study Abroad Team Manager, supporting both incoming and outgoing students at UEA. She lived in Germany and Egypt after completing an Erasmus year in Berlin, and is enthusiastic about helping students experience the benefits of studying abroad.


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) who would like to find out how international study can be included as part of their degree and to discover the many advantages of making this choice.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider questions they have about studying abroad as part of their degree.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.

Booking a Place: This is free for schools and colleges. If you would like to take part in this event, please register your interest using the link to the registration form below:
