Global Opportunities is the home of Durham's study, work and volunteer abroad options. Each year in October the University runs a Global Opportunities Fair for students to find out more. On the virual day we run three types of live event.
The sessions are not being recorded, however, we will try to upload any slides to this page after the event for students to revisit.
The 2023 Global Opportunities Fair will be held on the 18th & 19th of October. The event will include presentations from the GO team, international partner universities and professional support staff from relevant departments within Durham. Further details will be published below closer to the event, as the schedule becomes confirmed.
