BE ADVENTUROUS. BE AUDACIOUS.
When you are a student, most of the time, you have to do an internship. Sometimes, you are hesitating between doing it in your country or abroad. Let us tell you WHY you have to do it abroad.
1_ LANGUAGE SKILLS
This first reason seems to be the most obvious. Of course, when you are in a foreign country, you have to immerse yourself in a new language: English, Spanish, Chinese, French … or whatever. This is the best way to do it. Indeed, if you are interested in languages and you want to improve your skills – GO!
2_ VISIT THE WORLD
If you are crazy about travelling, you’ll have to choose an abroad internship! You are going to experience new outlooks, customs and activities. You will finally visit the monuments, natural wonders, landscapes you have dreamed of your whole life.
If you choose to do your internship in Europe or Vietnam, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the neighbour countries – YOU CAN’T MISS IT!
3_ NEW PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
When you finish your internship abroad and return home, you will return with a new perspective on culture, language skills, a great education, and a willingness to learn. Needless to say, all of these are very attractive to future employer
Many students find that they love their host country so much that they decide to seek work there. If you can relate, you will find that a local education will be very valuable when searching for a potential job in that country – TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY!
4_ DISCOVER NEW CULTURE
Many students who choose to go abroad are leaving their home for the first time. When they arrive in their new host country, they are fascinated by the distinct cultural perspectives. When you study abroad you will find incredible new foods, customs, traditions, and social atmospheres.
You will find that you have a better understanding and appreciation for the nation’s people and history. You will have the opportunity to witness a completely new way of life – BE CURIOUS!
5_ MAKE LONG LIFE FRIENDS
One of the biggest benefits of going abroad is the opportunity to meet new lifelong friends from different backgrounds. While being abroad, you will attend live with other students from your host country. This gives you the opportunity to really get to know and create lasting relationships with your fellow students.
After the internship abroad ends, make an effort stay in contact with your international friends. In addition to rewarding personal relationships, these friends can also be important networking tools later down the road. –FRIENDSHIP NEVER ENDS!
6_ PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
There is nothing quite like being on your own in a foreign country. You might find that being abroad really brings out your independent nature. Students who go abroad become explorers of their new nation and really discover the curiosity and excitement that they harbor.
A benefit to being abroad is the opportunity to discover yourself while gaining an understanding of a different culture. Being in a new place by yourself can be overwhelming at times, and it tests your ability to adapt to diverse situations while being able to problem solve. – DISCOVER YOURSELF!

Why do internship abroad? For most students, this time may be the only opportunity they ever get to travel abroad for a long period of time. Eventually you will find a job and career, and the opportunity to go abroad may turn out to be a once in a life time opportunity.
Take this opportunity to travel the world with no commitments but to study and learn about new cultures. Being abroad is an experience unlike any other. –THE YEAR OF YOUR LIFE!
