Tick off to Take off: The Pre-Departure Guide
Arthur, Erica
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v13 n1 p22-27 Jan 2009
"Tick Off to Take Off (TOTTO)" is an online pre-departure guide for UK undergraduates intending to study abroad. It aims to simplify the application process, centralise information, increase efficiency and improve retention rates. TOTTO responds to the changing climate surrounding study abroad in UK universities and offers one way to address calls for a more centralised, integrated pre-departure service. This paper sets out significant issues surrounding student mobility, describes TOTTO's features and its impact on the services provided at Keele University, and explores the benefits of online resources such as TOTTO for study abroad provision in UK institutions. (Contains 3 figures.)
