The International COMPASS Programme, a series of co-ordinated orientation modules for postgraduate research students studying in Scotland, has arranged a visit to Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands for international postgraduates.
Students will be transported to the Glen by coach, before visiting the exhibition centre and being taken on a guided walk. Lunch is also included in the ticket price of £10.00 – so it is a real bargain. The event is also open to friends and partners of students, although please do not bring children.
Glencoe has some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland, and you will also have the opportunity to learn about some of its most famous (or infamous!) history.
We will be running two trips, on 15th May and 29th May 2015.

Join us for one of our labs on Managing your Digital Footprint. We will explore our own digital tracks and traces (on your choice of machines in the computer lab or your own devices) and discuss what we find. We will then look at ways to curate an online identity/presence, including some expert advice on best practices.
Everyone is welcome and we hope that by the end of the session you will have had a chance to reflect on your own digital footprint and consider how you’d like to manage your digital identity in the future.
The session will be very informal and interactive as we want this to be about you sharing your own experience as well as learning from the social media experts that will be leading the labs.
Research note: We will be capturing notes and audio from the discussions – and you will be asked to consent to this. We will treat your comments and discussion with respect. Notes and transcripts from the audio will be fully anonymised before feeding into our research associated with the Managing your digital footprint project.
