Why should I consider studying abroad?
- Enhance your skill-set – problem solving, communication, patience and perseverance, determination, self-motivation, independent working, organisation, analytical and study skills
- Experience different academic perspectives and theory and discover new methods of teaching and learning
- Enhance your career prospects – You will leave university with more than just a degree. By taking part in an exchange you have shown that you are happy to take on new challenges and that you are dedicated to your personal and professional development. This kind of experience will make your CV stand out.
- Immerse yourself in another culture rather than just being a traveller
- Enhance your personal development – studying abroad increases confidence by testing your ability to deal with difficult situations and unfamiliar surroundings
- Create contacts and network – you can build worldwide relationships that can last a lifetime and benefit you in years to come
- Have fun! – feedback from students returning from exchange is overwhelmingly positive, many saying that it was life-changing and one of the best experiences of their lives
