The Global Mobility Experience Bursary (GMEB) was funded by the King’s Race Equity and Inclusive Education Fund with the aim of the Bursary to address the participation gap between students of minority ethnicities in Study Abroad activities – both in outgoing King’s degree students studying abroad as part of their degree, and in incoming students coming to King’s for a semester or year.
The Global Mobility Office awarded 20x £500 student bursaries to enhance student experience during Study Abroad activities in the 2022/23 academic year. Students were required to submit an application and answer questions on their personal, academic and professional motivations to study abroad, their plans for how they would spend the money and how that would impact and enhance their study abroad experience.
By sharing student experiences on our social media and blogs, we hope to inspire those who are unsure whether studying abroad is an option for them. We also want to show some of interesting, unusual and transformative experiences that were made possible by the Bursary.
So without further ado, we hope you enjoy reading our Student Success Stories that you will see featured in this blog!
