Studying abroad is always far more enjoyable than studying at home! There’s something about a new country, a new culture and the excitement of exploring somewhere different. Combine studying with an Erasmus+ or Turing work placement and not only do you have the added bonus of experiencing a different part of the world, you also get a foot in the door when it comes to starting your career!
