DigiPass: an introduction

The purpose of the DigiPass virtual training programme is to improve the impact of studying abroad from awareness of the possibilities to after your return. It has been designed around the experiences, challenges, skills, and learnings you are likely to encounter or develop by going abroad.

About the training

The DigiPass training consist of 12 modulesExternal link, separated in 4 phases: Orientation, pre-departure, during mobility and after mobility. Each module includes key information, exercises and resources to help you master that topic. Through completing these modules you will learn practical tips, gain confidence, obtain tools to deal with obstacles and you will be empowered to take ownership and make the most of your study abroad experience.

Let’s have a closer look at the four phases:

  1. "Orientation" helps you to decide if going abroad is the right choice for you, and what type of experience best meets your needs.
  2. "Pre-departure" prepares you to head off on your mobility equipped with everything you need to make a smooth transition to your host country and institution.
  3. "During your Exchange" guides you through your time abroad to make it as successful as possible.
  4. "After your Exchange" teaches you how to apply your learning in a variety of settings as well as helping you re-adjust to your home life and culture once you return.
