Update: studying abroad; leadership masterclass

Being LGBT and studying abroad event

We’re holding an event in collaboration with the University of York on issues for LGBT students studying abroad. This is a follow-up to a joint event on working abroad that took place at the University of York last week. The focus is on studying abroad in countries where LGBT people are faced with criminalisation or hostility, including a look at how this can be managed and what measures can be put in place.

We’re looking for people to contribute their experiences, with the intention of informing policy and documenting best practice. We’re primarily looking for students (including PhD candidates), but we would welcome the staff perspective too.

The event will be held roughly 12:30-14:00 on Monday 27 April. If you’re interested in contributing, contact Andy. Please do let others know too!
