Exchange opportunities:


If going to Vienna for the first semester only, students should be aware that teaching at Vienna runs until the end of January and they will miss the first weeks of teaching at KBS. Whilst KBS have approved this, students are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure they are caught up on all missed work during this period. Any missed assessments will not be mitigated as the result of study abroad.
