In our society the distance between countries has become increasingly smaller. The scope of companies reaches far beyond national borders, and you increasingly have to work together with foreign colleagues. Also in the non-profit sector intercultural experience is highly valued. Solid language skills and adaptability to a constantly changing environment are important assets in the labour market. An experience abroad is the ideal way to acquire these skills and thus has become an important part of your university education.
Gaining experience abroad is possible for all students and the University of Antwerp will help you with this.
There are plenty of options:
- you can integrate a study period - inside or outside Europe - via an exchange programme
- gain work experience through an internship
- do fieldwork or an internship in a developing country
- attend a summer school
Even after your studies at the University of Antwerp you can choose to specialize elsewhere.
With an open mind, a little sense of adventure and a good preparation your stay abroad will be a valuable experience.
