Leaving the comforts of home to study abroad can be the experience of a lifetime, opening doors to future career and personal opportunities. Today’s workforce is mobile and multilingual, so choosing to study in France will provide students with skills and experiences needed to be successful in the changing and increasingly demanding employment market. International study abroad programs will help students view the world from a different perspective through immersion in a foreign culture, surrounded by peers from around the world. Since studying abroad often comes with a greater expense than living and enrolling at a school back home, study abroad scholarships help offset the costs making the decision easier financially and in the long-term less stressful. Students considering studies abroad can learn more about financial assistance, bursaries and scholarships both at their chosen institution and at home. Despite some of the costs, receiving an international education will appeal to firms looking to hire new graduates with a global outlook, both at home and overseas. And away from the classroom, students will be exposed to a social life that includes peers with a variety of passports and accents. Not only will making friends from other cultures be personally rewarding but having an international rolodex will make students’ job searches take on global dimensions.
