Students across the Screen School have had many opportunities to take their studies and adventures outside of Liverpool. LJMU’s Go Abroad programmes have had students jetting off for summer schools, exchanges and competitions.
In normal times, this would also include studying abroad for a semester or full year in the USA, and working abroad and participating on international projecting using Erasmus+ funding.
Despite not being being able to travel in 2020 and 2021, graduating students still had the opportunity to travel in the first and second years of their studies at LJMU. Use the interactive map below to explore where students have visited.
Below are just a few of these opportunities in more detail
During may 2019 a group of Screen School students flew out to Shanghai, China for 10 days as part of a summer school exchange with Shanghai Normal University. Whilst there they completed a 72 hour film challenge with students from SHNU, explored the city and its surroundings and developed friendships across the globe. Below are collections of memories from the trip that our students have collated from their time spent abroad.
The students at SHNU also produced a short video for our students about their time over there, to capture some of the special memories that were made on the trip:
