A conference overseas is an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about your specialist subject and widen your social and professional network. Presenting a paper or a poster at a conference is an important part of personal and professional development and will look great on your CV.

Conferences can be open to undergraduate and postgraduate students. It is worth keeping an eye on the specialist publications relating to your area of studies to look for opportunities as conferences take place throughout the year. You could also check with your academic tutor, or with other students in your faculty, to see if they can make any recommendations.
