Restricted access

Studying abroad offers a wide range of professional and personal benefits. Professionally, it enables PhD students to work with leading scholars in their field, to learn from different education systems and to get access to international grants. Furthermore, it enhances your career opportunities by widening your research network and by demonstrating your willingness to take up challenges and your ability to adapt to diverse situations. Besides, by immersing yourself into a new education and foreign culture, you experience benefits that can go far beyond a purely academic experience. Witnessing a new way of life, and learning about different traditions, values and new activities, creates the opportunity for a better understanding of your own culture as well as your own ability to learn and adapt to new challenges.
