The time spent studying can, in many ways, be the best time of your life. A first class education is good for a professional career in the future. Improving your resume with a stay abroad can increase your chances for a good job, all while allowing you to see more of the world.
It is through visits abroad that students develop the necessary skills towards intercultural understanding. Social skills, as well as know-how, are especially sought after in international corporations. The so-called “soft skills” play a crucial role in the professional career – not to mention the ability to communicate effectively in a foreign language.
Adaptability: different countries – different cultures. The incorporation into new surroundings becomes easier. High flexibility and mobility: working both independently and flexibly is essential in professional life. Language skills and expertise: Today, at least one foreign language is a requirement for the workplace. Dedication and motivation: a stay abroad furthers personal independence, and is a lot of fun too!

another purpose: Students gather social and cultural experiences – what could be the foundation for
