Read two testimonials below with advice on why you should grab the opportunity to study abroad with both hands and how to choose your destination:

"Choose a place where you will be immersed n a new world, out of your comfort zone.  That would be my advice.

This will be appreciated by your future employers, it is supported by grants, coached by VUB staff, controlled and supervised through VUB partnerships, it enriches your multicultural skills and will give you self-confidence.

We work hard to build Internationalisation @ home features in the VUB curricula and in the student’s daily reality, but real mobility is for those who want an extra experience, for those that want to build an international network of friends for life and future professional colleagues and for those who really want to feel at home worldwide."

Jan Cornelis, Pro-Vice Rector International Policy

"Studying abroad is very educational and fun at the same time, but it also lays the foundations for moving around later on in your future professional life and career.

Be flexible, be responsible, acquire the skills to be productive in a multicultural environment and work towards meaningful achievements around the globe. Seize the opportunities that are offered to you today, now,  and get a taste of that first or a new experience abroad.

VUB will do its utmost best to help and coach you so that your international experience will be a positive one. The knowledge, skills, experience you will accumulate is priceless. "

Jacqueline Couder, Head International Relations & Mobility Office
