International Connections Fund

Your help will open a world of opportunity for students who cannot afford international experience without support.

A life-changing opportunity awaits students who get the chance to study and work abroad. International experience sets students apart – their cultural and academic understanding expands and they learn to work across nationalities and languages.

With your help we can address the funding shortage for opportunities outside Europe as well as shorter exchange courses in Europe (which often prepare students for full Erasmus+ opportunities).

Your gift will support:

  • students on personal, cultural or work-related development projects such as summer schools, language courses, work and volunteering
  • scholarships towards academic and work exchanges with top-class institutions in North America, Asia, Australia and South Africa
  • bursaries for International Study Centres in Japan, South Africa and Canada providing career and development benefits through a short period of learning abroad.

Studying abroad was the best thing I did at university. I would suggest it to anybody, regardless of their experience in travelling abroad because there is nobody who can’t benefit from an international experience.
