Develop your skills through Virtual Exchange

Virtual Exchange is a short project that brings students from different parts of the world and different cultural backgrounds together online.

The exchange gives students from the University of Bath an opportunity to interact in English and the foreign language with a student from a partner university overseas and discuss a variety of topics. The sessions are not language lessons, but a chance to meet an exchange partner with similar interests and share an intercultural experience together.

"The joy of having an exchange partner is about engaging in another culture and learning about the lifestyles of individuals living in a different part of the world." (Natalie Page, MRes International Development)
