Although it is an experience for which you need a budget, however, there are many scholarships and grants which you help you afford the exciting experience such as the Erasmus+ grant. 

Languages are fundamental to have in both in the workplace and in personal life. This experience will increase your curriculum vitae, since the fact of studying abroad gives a plus when it comes to finding work, since it denotes a foreign language performance and added maturity. Sometimes, it can be the difference which makes you stand out among your classmates.

But, before you go abroad, you have to be willing to face new challenges both personal and professional that you will have to overcome, and you won’t have the support of family, friends… At first it will be difficult but little by little you will get used to it.

Also during this experience, you will have the possibility to meet new people, different cultures, different ways of acting… that will help you grow and mature, to see life from another perspective. At the same time, you can see new places, beautiful landscapes… that you may never see again since each city has its own charm.

Going to work abroad is a new adventure, every day will be an different and get out of the routine of your daily life. You will have to learn to adapt to the new circumstances, whether you live in a shared flat, an apartment or a family. This experience enhances self-confidence, since you have to learn to stand up for yourself in a new environment.
