Get funding to carry out a project, volunteer or work abroad

The Go Global Fund encourages students to broaden their horizons and enhance their employability by undertaking an international activity outside of their programme of study. Students can get funding for individual projects, volunteering or working abroad up to a maximum amount of £1500.

This was a once in a lifetime experience, I would recommend that anyone that has the chance, takes it - it has completely changed my outlook on life.
