How to make the most of venture
19 January, 2016
A British Council survey noted an increasing awareness amongst young people of the importance of international exposure. In fact, amongst the under-25 age group, 54% believed that a lack of global experience was holding them back from getting the job they really want.
The realisation that employers value skills such as cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse teams has prompted many students to take advantage of the opportunities available to them. Erasmus exchanges, internships, or even doing a full degree in another country (sometimes at a fraction of the price of a UK degree!) are now popular options for many UK students.
Despite this growing trend, when asked about information resources, only 24% of UK students felt they had sufficient information to make an informed decision about studying abroad, and their preferred source of information was the internet (rather than study abroad officers, career services etc.)
