One of the few snags of the year abroad is that many universities also set assignments during your time away. Some are more sympathetic and ask you to write diary-like reports on what you’re up to, some send little tests to monitor your language improvement, however, mine has set me a research...

One of the simultaneously great and annoying things about year abroad is that everyone does it differently. It would be rubbish if everyone did the same thing and flexibility (which I am so very grateful to my university for allowing us) means you can tailor your year abroad to your strengths, weaknesses,...

Before leaving university almost a year ago, to embark on the crazy adventure that is the year abroad, we had numerous lectures on how important it was to continue practising our other languages if we weren’t in the country where they are spoken, and especially if you weren’t at a university,...

French offers some incredible year abroad opportunities including several Francophone countries outside of Europe. After visiting France many times and studying the French speaking world, I was after a completely different, unique experience and so I decided to spend the French part of my year abroad...

None of us are healthy all year round, so potentially falling ill on your Year Abroad is something to prepare for because none of us are invincible. I have asthma and I’m in the South of Spain which has gotten very, very hot and humid very, very quickly. My lungs don’t cope well with this...

Well…not exactly. However, that’s not to say it wasn’t an amazing experience filled with awesome memories! The event I am talking about, held in the Place des Palais in Brussels, was a chance for families and individuals alike to enjoy a fun evening with their loved ones. Fabulous...

I'd also recommend opening an account once you're a resident/have a NI number equivalent, to avoid paying charges. If you're under 26 a lot of banks won't charge you to have the account, as...

I will be forever grateful to Spaniards for deciding to have such frequent bank holidays. I certainly made the most of the double whammy of a bank holiday we just enjoyed in the region of Madrid (Monday and Tuesday off!). In a panic over not having seen enough Spain, and my flight home at the end of...

For most people, the beginning of May means the end of your year abroad isn’t too far away now. So what will you do with your summer? As well as catching up with friends and family, readjusting to grey skies and preparing for the most daunting year of your university education, how else can you...
