Why Study Away?

  • Build independence and teamwork skills across cultures
  • Develop experience to help you succeed in a competitive global environment.
Having the opportunity to study [abroad] and work in Spain… The experience provided me with a great opportunity to ‘try out’ living and working abroad before I fully committed to a career in international journalism.
