Forthcoming Events

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

Ranging from half day workshops to national and international symposiums and conferences, 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.
