The majority of the United Kingdom (UK)'s youth and community work
(YCW) students complete their studies within the UK. A minority undertake
fieldwork placements outside the UK either using their own contacts
or through programmes such as Erasmus (the European Union's
mobility scheme for university students). This article focuses on the nature
of learning for these students, who typically live and work in an
unfamiliar context for between three and six months. During this time
they are dislocated from the familiar in personal and professional terms
and are immersed in different cultural and social contexts. This research
focuses on the nature of learning for YCW students who undertake professional
practice placements outside the UK.
