At the School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures we encourage internationalisation and diversity in teaching and research, and one of the ways we do this is by opening up our courses to visiting international students.
Additionally, students who graduate with an International Degree are in high demand with employers. International experience gained as part of your degree will give you an advantage over other job seekers. In an increasingly global market, employers want to hire people who are familiar with other cultures, languages, and countries.
“…studying abroad isn’t just an important part of a well-rounded educational experience. It’s also becoming increasingly important for success in the modern global economy. Getting ahead in today’s workplaces isn’t just about the skills you bring from the classroom. It’s also about the experience you have with the world beyond our borders — with people, and languages, and cultures that are very different from our own.”
- Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States of America, January 2011
