Why work or study overseas?

  1. Your skills and qualities improve your career prospects.

    Graduates who spend time abroad tend to be in high demand from employers, due to the unique sets of skills they gain during their time abroad.

    Choosing to work or study abroad shows a great deal of initiative and confidence. It also shows you have a willingness to get out of your comfort zone and gain independence. These are qualities that employers value in their future workforce.

  2. Create a wide circle of friends and grow your social network.

    During your time overseas you'll meet lots of new people who might become your friends for life.

    Having friends around the world is priceless. You'll compare cultures, places, music and food — sometimes even in another language. If you're trying to learn a new language, having a fluent friend can be a huge help with your progression.

    Having friends in other countries can create fantastic opportunities for your career too. Extending your networks globally can also help you find opportunities to work abroad.

  3. Experience life in an entirely new country.

    One of the most rewarding aspects of working or studying overseas is getting to enjoy entirely new cultures and ways of life.

    Try new foods, discover new music and get involved with local activities. Explore what life is like in a new place, and expand your knowledge of the world beyond home.

    Having experience of different cultures will complement your studies. And, it can help boost your employability.

  4. Enjoy every minute.

    New destinations provide opportunities for trying out a new way of life, a chance which can be difficult to find in your day-to-day life at home.

    If you're ready to see the world, and want to make the most of it, then exploring our global opportunities is a great first step. We'll always be here to help you get to where you need to go - to ensure that you have the best time no matter what you end up doing.

Hear from our students

If you’re thinking of studying abroad, do it. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made and it’s not often you get the chance to spend so much time in a different country. Make sure to talk to new people and make friends. I’ve met some people that I’ll be friends with for the rest of my life.
