There are many good reasons why students choose a programme with a Study Abroad placement. First and foremost, living and studying in a different country offers exciting new experiences and the chance to broaden one’s horizons, academically and culturally. What’s more, it encourages you to become more self-confident and independent, as well as allowing the chance to specialise in areas that are possibly not available at Exeter. The willingness to adapt to new environments and to face new challenges are just two of the factors that make students with a Study Abroad degree so invaluable to future employers. For these reasons, amongst many others, Study Abroad is an opportunity that should be considered by all Humanities students.
