They say that travel broadens the mind and it is certainly given many of our undergraduates different perspectives on dentistry visiting other schools and cultures.
It is important that students have an equal opportunity to participate in overseas visits and are not restricted by access to finance.
To this end, we make travel awards available every year to help pay for air fares and subsistence to students travelling to do a variety of projects abroad.
You can see reports on some of previous overseas trips in our features section.
For obvious reasons travel restrictions mean that there are no plans for student travel in the immediate future – we’ll provide more information as soon as possible. For the moment it has been decided that funds allocated to this fund will be transferred to Hardship until things settle down.
