One world and the opportunities to see it through UWE

Posted by Sarah Proudfoot | 0 comments

There’s a global feeling in the air today, as UWE continues to celebrate the annual One World Week on Frenchay campus aiming to unite students from the UK and around the world through a celebration of world music, food and culture.

From a Careers perspective, One World Week is also about raising awareness of the fantastic international opportunities available to all UWE students.

For starters, our site has links to various voluntary organisations and charities that are ideal to approach for such an opportunity.

Recent months have also seen the introduction of pages geared towards finding work in specific countries like India, Vietnam and Malaysia.

More specifically, there are fantastic opportunities to teach English as a foreign language including the JET scheme which offers students the chance to spend a year in Japan. BUNAC offers a variety of work and travel programmes all over the world including their USA Summer Camp, and there are many more of these amazing opportunities advertised on our Travel and Work overseas pages.

If you are not sure what you are looking for or where you want to go websites like FCO, Go Gap Year and the Prospects guidelines offer sound advice to help you to make the right choice.

Elsewhere, Going Global offers a range of internships and jobs currently advertising positions for you to apply for today. Sites like the Exodus Database and the Graduates Prospects page are designed to ensure that your time abroad is the best possible experience for you.

The UWE Careers website also boasts a range of resources for those students looking to carry on their academic careers abroad. The Erasmus Programme offers students the opportunity to study abroad as part of their degree programme, whilst for those students looking to taste the bright lights of the U.S, should look no further than the Fulbright Commission website.

So whether you treating yourself to a shiatsu, enjoying the week’s international cuisine or getting to grips with a new language, don’t forget that there’s a big world out there and you’ve got all the resources at your fingertips to explore it.
