Fieldwork Applications: New York

Opportunities to undertake experimental learning abroad are available through the University’s Work Based Learning unit or you may prefer to arrange your own placement. Alternatively, you may prefer to gain practical experience of community based development work overseas. This could be organised for you through the International Office/Study Abroad which has well-established links between the University and partner organisations. You may select from a variety of projects in South Africa, Romania, Uganda and Costa Rica and this provides you with an ideal opportunity to travel with friends and gain experience of very different communities to our own.
