Geography students’ perceptions and experiences of studying abroad

Project Details


The goal of this project is to explore students’ perceptions and experiences of studying abroad in order to better understand how our academic and professional services staff can improve support for potential, current, and returning exchange students on the MA and BSc Geography programmes. Our objectives are: 1) to find out what factors motivate and enable Geography students to apply for and undertake a study abroad placement; 2) to determine what factors prevent or deter Geography students from applying for, or participating in, study abroad; 3) to reveal how geography students experience both their year abroad and subsequent return to study at Edinburgh; 4) to develop a set of recommendations for implementation in the 2024-25 academic year.
