The Erasmus & Study Abroad Office – the central University function responsible for Study Abroad activities – will play a pivotal part in delivering and supporting these opportunities.

There will be a strong focus in the use of technology to enhance and develop promotional and support activities, and in increasing student participation from cohorts currently under-represented in mobility activities.
The successful applicant will be expected to learn about and contribute to all functions of the Erasmus & Study Abroad Office, working closely with colleagues within the team, and throughout the University to help ensure successful and efficient operations.
