Global Wales Discover is an international mobility programme developed by Welsh Government, the British Council Wales and Global Wales to increase the numbers of Welsh University undergraduates undertaking international experience abroad as part of their studies. The programme aims to break down barriers to participation through offering shorter-term placements and supported living costs. The programme provides funding to support Welsh students’ living costs and travel while they undertake a 2-8 week short term work, study or volunteering programme.
