What is PICNIC?

PICNIC (Partnership-Innovation-Collaboration-Networking-Improvement-Creation) is an opportunity for students at Swansea University to visit another UK University for a short visit of between 1-7 days based on mutual arrangements (exchanges) between the partner universities.

The purpose of the visit is to exchange ideas about good practices on enhancing student engagement/representation/partnership while observing, meeting with staff and students to discuss practices and scholarships and contributing to events.

Swansea University covers the costs of accommodation and travel and the receiving university makes arrangements in consultation with the visiting student to create an exciting agenda.

To find out more information please contact Steph Dalton or you can fill out an application form and you will be contacted regarding your query.

Deadline to apply: 06/01/2019
