Benefits far beyond practical support
Help your child stand out in the competitive job market!
Employers view international experience as a valuable asset, as it proves adaptability, cultural competency, and language skills. But let’s put that into numbers.
A study by NAFSA found that students who study abroad are much more likely to receive job offers with 94% of employers preferring to hire candidates with international experience.
In fact, the Institute of International Education shows that students who go abroad are 2x more likely to be employed within 12 months of graduation.
If that was not enough, the University of California found that they also have on average a $7,000 higher salary per year when comparing them to their non-study abroad peers.
The opportunities that come with abroad work experiences and professional development make sure that your child achieves their desired career goals. However, educational goals are just as important.
That’s why all of our host companies conform with all university regulation and requirements in case they need to complete research papers or other projects during their internship.
On a personal level, living and working abroad allows your child to immerse themselves in a new culture and gain a life-changing perspective on the world. This leads to increased happiness and overall quality of life.
AIFS found that 85% of students who studied abroad reported personal growth, and 87% said that studying abroad had a positive impact on their career.
educational & personal growth is critical too
