Sophia Butt (Schools of EDACS and Social Policy) recently travelled to McGill University (Canada) on her Scholarship:
"By far, the most beneficial aspect of my research trip to McGill University was the networking and collaboration opportunities that the visit accorded with others working in the same field. The research trip enabled me to enhance my confidence by further developing competences in my research area. Additionally, it reiterated the importance of the subject and should have placed me in a competitive position as regards future employability.”
