Study abroad: see the world and help your career !
Like many universities, Hull University Business School gives students the chance to spend a year overseas at partner institutions in Europe, Asia, North America or Australia, either by adding an extra year to their degrees or through international summer schools. It’s an option that more students are choosing, and the effect on their lives can be significant. For one thing, it can make you more employable, suggests Caroline Michel, international and engagement manager at Hull. “Employers recognise the value and challenges of a year away from home, friends and normal support networks,” she says. The experience can really make a difference to a student’s self-confidence and self-awareness too. There are also many professional benefits. Experiencing another country and culture enriches students’ learning experience and enhances their employability by providing them with a skillset and perspective that are vital for today’s fast-evolving globalised world. So if you want to perk up your CV, see somewhere new and have an experience you’ll never forget? You know now what to do.
