During the studies there comes a time, when one can no long ignore the subject of studying or doing an internship abroad. Classmates speak about it, chatting about a stay in China or Norway and about the positive effects on your CV. Many friends take the step to peek over the border of Germany for a half or full year, and it seems like a continual coming and going on campus.
On the other hand are concerns about the new, the unfamiliar, life without regular contact with friends and family, and financial insecurity. These apparent barriers fade quickly before the many advantages that a stay abroad can bring. Going abroad helps obtain, in a short amount of time, lots of fun, new character strengths and key qualifications: open-mindedness, flexibility, team skills and good language skills, with which one can set the tone for today’s employers.
