Exchange and study abroad

Why take part in an International Experience?

Studying abroad as part of your degree gives you a wonderful opportunity to broaden your personal, academic and cultural horizons.

At the Exchange Office we think the reasons are almost endless. According to the European Commission, students who study abroad are half as likely to be long-term unemployed as their non-mobile peers. Going on exchange helps you develop transferable skills that are incredibly appealing to employers such as adaptability, confidence, and increased communication skills. You’re also likely to become more culturally aware and improve or gain language skills. To top it all off, you’ll get to experience life in another country and make friendships that might last a life-time.
