Every year, applications are invited for the following Travel Exhibitions and Grants for the promotion of travel during the Long Vacation. As part of the online application you will submit a description of the proposed travel, about one side of A4. Tutors will be glad to advise their students about their applications. Successful applicants will be required to submit a short report on their travel by the end of October.

More information will be circulated in February, with a deadline in March (deadline this year is 09:00 on 27 March 2017). Current students should check their announcements regularly to avoid missing the deadline and get more information.
