Online global experiences

Take part in exciting international and cultural exchange experiences, without the need to travel overseas.

Online Go Global Experiences 2021

To make sure that you don’t miss out on 'Going Global' the Go Global Team have three exciting travel free options to offer you for 2021. These will all take place virtually using the same IT equipment as your online lectures.

These programmes are open to students eligible for the UWE Bristol Employability Bursary. Successful applicants will have their programme fee fully funded by the University.

Option One – Common Purpose Global Leadership Programmes

What would you do if the world’s problems were in your hands? 

Join 100 fellow UWE Bristol students to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the world today. You will have a dedicated mentor from Common Purpose (who are organising this activity) to ensure that you get the most out of your experience. A cultural intelligence programme, designed to challenge your beliefs and expectations and provide real world experience of working in a multinational team, is included in the activity. Joining you on the programme will be UWE Bristol International students and senior leaders from Bristol including Avon and Somerset Constabulary, Bristol City Council, Deloitte, NatWest and Barnardo’s. For more information email

This allows you to contribute to the Fiji National Development Plan and United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals across a range of different careers fields. This activity has been running since summer 2020 with UWE Bristol students giving it great feedback with many going back again to undertake a second internship. One UWE Bristol student even worked with the Prime Minister of Fiji!
