Each year, BUTEX organises a range of popular events for professionals involved in student exchange and study abroad.

Ranging from half and full day workshops to a yearly annual conference, our events are always an excellent opportunity to increase your knowledge base, learn about new initiatives, discuss current issues within Study Abroad, share best practice and simply to meet colleagues working within the field.

BUTEX events are only open for Members to attend.

BUTEX Annual Conference 2024

We are pleased to announce that our annual conference will be held at the University of Salford from 10-12 April. The theme of the event is Student Mobility: Managing Risk, Realising Reward. 

With the sector currently facing a number of challenges, this event will delve deep into these issues, discuss difficult and challenging topics and provide an opportunity for our members to work together, support each other and look for solutions.

Over three days we will have a range of sessions, as well as networking sessions, campus tours and informal and formal dinners. It will be a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues old and new in the sector and build relationships. 

The event is only open to BUTEX members to attend.

Sponsorship opportunities from both members and non members are available, so if you are interested in this please get in touch with us by emailing

BUTEX Winter Workshop 2024

Each year we hold a virtual Winter Workshop which is a free one day event for BUTEX members to attend.

An in person event prior to Covid, post pandemic it was decided to keep it as a virtual event to provide a free, fully accessible event for all of our members to attend.

The event takes place in late November/early December each year and comprises a number of sessions presented throughout the day by our members and sometimes external speakers, exploring the international mobility sector and current topics of interest.

"Excellent conference. Plenty of choice of sessions and really interesting mix of people."
"This was my first BUTEX conference and I have to say it exceeded my expectations! Well organised; great sessions; & fun networking opportunities."
"Great mix of sessions & delegates to promote an informal but very valuable space for ideas exchange."
