Why should you study and work abroad?
The benefits of study and work abroad to students are well-documented:
"One third of employers viewed a graduate with any overseas international
experience as more employable." (CIHE Report, Graduate Employability: What
do employers think and want? 2008).
Students who study or work abroad gain invaluable life skills. These include
improved global and intercultural awareness, maturity, confidence and
adaptability to new environments and challenges.
