On Monday 14th March 21 universities from across the world joined us here at Trent for the ‘Study Abroad Event’. Working alongside The Student World Company the aim of the event was to showcase the options that could be available if this route was taken.
Mr Mark Field, Head of Careers and Entry to Higher Education comments “The study abroad option is an extremely viable one, not just because it is usually a cheaper option than studying in the UK, but because it is mind broadening and is regarded well by employers. It is evidence that students are prepared to step outside their comfort zone, that they have the vision to look beyond the familiar and that they have an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit, vital attributes in the global economy and qualities that are much sought after by employers.”
The event was a huge success and students left these comments:
“I went along to the event with an open mind about the possibility of studying abroad but it was never something I was seriously considering. But now after the event I am almost certain that I want to study abroad. The event gave me an insight into the studying abroad options and all the experiences that can be gained from doing so”
“I attended this event as studying abroad seems like a huge opportunity that lets me learn more about a country and its culture, and to meet new people.”
“I love travelling and experiencing different cultures. I believe studying in another country will help immerse myself into its environment”.
