Hi,

I'm off to UEA, Exeter, or Cardiff for PG this fall. Doing a program in sustainable dev. or int dev and environ. The dissertation period begins in Spring 2012. I was just wondering if it was possible to work, travel, and/or do the dissertation in a different country? Seems like a lot of reading and writing that could be done anywhere.

Thanks

It isn't usually a problem. As long as you make certain that the dissertation reaches its destination by airmail. Though the writing/reading would be much easier when you have easy access to the library and if the electronic resources rely on VPN access (which can be very unreliable when outside of campus).

The only time I can think of this being a complication is if you are a non-EU student, there will often be residency requirements as a condition of the receipt of government loans (if applicable) or any sort of legal repurcussions. There may also be a registration requirement in your university for postgraduate students to be resident in close proximity for a minimum amount of weeks; but think this applies mostly to non-EU and often it refers to term-time for EU/Home students. If in doubt, ask someone in your academic department.

If you don't have many meetings with your supervisor, should be okay.
