This summer, 25 first year A2B students had the opportunity to visit Hong Kong. The trip was delivered by Study Abroad with support from DARO and Outreach, with the aim of increasing global mobility among students from widening participation backgrounds. The full cost of the trip was funded through the Alumni Impact Fund with contributions from Outreach, DARO and Study Abroad, with no expense to the students.
Whilst in Hong Kong, our A2B students undertook a weeklong leadership training delivered by Common Purpose in Hong Kong. University of Birmingham students attended alongside students from the universities of Nottingham and Hong Kong. During their free time, students had time to explore Hong Kong and all its cultural delights!
Georgia, an A2B student on the Hong Kong trip, documented her experience on her blog.
