Attend the Back2U Conference

So you've studied abroad, gained valuable international and intercultural experience, and maybe even learned a new language. Now what?

The Back2U Conference is an event designed to help you as you transition back into coming home. During the sessions and workshops you will have a chance to connect with other returnees and past UAlberta students who have launched "global" careers. Come learn how to use your experience abroad to your advantage, either academically, personally or professionally!
