New research proves: Studies abroad help boost employability
A recent European Commission study finds that young people who study abroad enjoy better employment prospects. Big employers are increasingly looking not only for the knowledge in specific disciplines but also for key skills and attitudes which can be developed while studying abroad.
The Erasmus impact study shows that graduates with international experience fare much better on the job market. They are half as likely to experience long-term unemployment compared with those who have not studied or trained abroad and, five years after graduation, their unemployment rate is 23% lower.
