The Student World is delighted to be organising its 8th annual Huddle (Careers Advisers Study Abroad CPD Day). As the number of UK students studying abroad continues to increase year-on-year, with no indicators of slowing down, such an event is an important part of the conference calendar.


The Huddle - Study Abroad CPD day for HE Advisers.

Our Huddle is a unique networking event, connecting high school Higher Education Advisers (Careers, Advisers, Heads of Sixth Form) with international university representatives. It is designed to inspire and enthuse and help you incorporate Study Abroad into your Careers Education Advice and Guidance Strategy, as well as give you the opportunity to meet with specialist advisers, universities, and government agencies from around the world. The day-long seminar programme will provide a platform to learn about the opportunities available for your students, as well as the more practical side of applying to overseas universities, such as application processes and finances. You will come away better able to advise your students and with a network of experts to call upon in the future.
