Abertay Goes Global 2014!

6 October 2014

For all the latest information about this event, please visit the Abertay Goes Global webpages or the UADSA Facebook page.

Are you interested in studying or working abroad? Then come along to Abertay Goes Global - a week of activities to promote study and work opportunities in Europe, the U.S. and beyond!

If you are looking for adventure, a new experience, or a break from your regular routine, then this is the place to start.

Hosted by UADSA and the university's new International Office, there will be events running every day from October 13-17.

The whole week will have an international theme, with the chance to sample food and drink from our partner countries, a study abroad-themed pub quiz, a film night, some karaoke and, of course, the chance to meet with Abertay students who have studied and worked abroad, as well as students from overseas who are currently studying here at Abertay.

To find out more, have a look below to see what will be going on this year and watch the video above to find out what happened at last year's great event.

You can also contact Torsten Matzke and Carmen Martinez in the International Office, or Stewart Squire at UADSA.
