Study Abroad 3: What are the most important reasons for studying language overseas?
One recent survey of agencies showed the 4 reasons ranked in the following order:
1. Future work 38%
2. Further studies overseas 36%
3. Pleasure and Culture 16%
4. Current work 10%
These statistics perhaps should not surprise anyone – after all, open a newspaper of look for job online and you’ll soon find that without language skills you are at an distinct disadvantage.
Opportunities to study abroad for students have never been more abundant. However, one recent phenomenon is the explosive growth in University degrees all over Europe which are taught in English.
