Go Global

Go Global banner

6-17 November 2017

Go Global is our annual celebration and promotion of ways you can spend time overseas as a King's student or staff member

Going global during your degree is likely to expand your network of contacts, broaden your horizons, increase your employability, help you develop new skills, create opportunities for new discussions and new ideas, flip your perspective, and generally make for a potentially life-changing experience (or at least so we've been told by those who've gone before).

Not sure how?

Get involved and learn all about the international opportunities available to staff and students during TWO WEEKS of Go Global events - scroll down to see day-by-day listings.

Go Global includes the annual Study Abroad Fair as well as department-specific events across the Strand, Guy's and Waterloo campuses, with co-ordinators from the Global Mobility Office delivering tailored information briefings for the students of 30 departments at King's.
