                 Why Study Abroad?
   “Graduates who have studied abroad more
    appealing to businesses.
    UK graduates are missing out on high-flying international jobs
    because fewer of them are choosing to study abroad as part of
    their degree.

    New research presented today by the Council for Industry and
    Higher Education (CIHE) found that international businesses are
    increasingly seeking graduates who have a global awareness,
    particularly those who have the initiative to study overseas as
    part of their learning.

    Graduates who have studied abroad tend to be more culturally
    aware, able to work in multicultural teams and move around the
    world as part of their career.”
