Support before you go

There will be lots of preparation before you go abroad, including a mandatory pre-departure briefing session to help you get the most out of the experience.

The Global Opportunities team are your first point of contact in the lead up to going as well as while you're away.

They will guide you through the paperwork, and help you prepare for your adventure abroad by providing friendly pastoral and practical support.

Intercultural Fluency Course

All Goldsmiths students have free access to an Intercultural Fluency skill course, via Pagoda Projects. This course focuses on 'work readiness' in a post-pandemic world, and will help you develop vital intercultural communication skills necessary for your time abroad.

The deadline to register is 30 April 2021, and you can complete the course at your own pace throughout the remainder of the academic year. You will be awarded a certificate upon completion.

Sign up now on the Pagoda website.

Erasmus Academic Coordinators

Every department has an Erasmus Academic Coordinator (EAC) who helps support students studying abroad.

The EAC in your department will help you choose the right modules at your host university, and ensure that you will be taking the right amount of credits. They will also sign off your Learning Agreement.

If you have any academic concerns or issues while on your placement, or if you want to change modules, your EAC will be able to help.

They may also check in with you while you're away.
