Learning Languages

When you're thinking about your options, if you want skills that could open up a whole load of opportunities for you, maybe you should learn another language.

The ability to speak more than one language can give you an edge when applying for jobs in the future and open the door to a range of exciting careers that you might not have considered before, both in this country and abroad.

Some basic foreign language skills can prove essential in all kinds of careers, including jobs in accountancy, computing, customer services, engineering, finance, marketing, the media and of course, travel and tourism.

Learning a foreign language will help you develop additional skills too, such as communication, presentation and problem solving and can open up opportunities to travel and meet new people abroad.

For your future career and future experiences, choosing to study a foreign language could prove to be one of the best decisions you've ever made.

Studying abroad

Student exchange programmes

These programmes give students the opportunity to attend courses in another European country, for a period of time that can range from three months to one academic year. Do you want to be one of them? Find here the programmes in which you can participate.

The study abroad guide
Studying abroad may be that defining moment in your education that will change your life. Nothing will be quite the same after you have studied abroad. Your perspectives will be global, your attitudes will be international and you will have memories that you will carry forever. Your resume will be more attractive, in some cases your language proficiency will be advanced, and you will have developed lifelong friendships.
The largest misconception that prevents students from participating in study abroad is its perceived inaccessibility. Students who do study abroad are often amazed at how easy it was to put the whole thing together. Financial aid is often available, every major field of study can partake, and study abroad is an experience available for every student. It's as easy as a working through a checklist. The following information is just that, it should be used only as a guideline, each university or college has their own study abroad policy.

Why study abroad?
Academic credit - The most obvious reason why students study abroad is to earn academic credit. You should consider the type of credit you will earn on your study abroad program. Will you earn credit towards your major or elective credit only? Will you receive grades or pass/fail credit only? You may study abroad to earn upper division credits in your major field or you may be overseas to earn some of your core or general education hours your freshman year.
Language acquisition - The world market place is shrinking rapidly, many companies require second languages. Foreign languages are not only valuable in the work force they are valuable in the real world.
Practical experience - Study abroad coupled with an international internship is an incredible way to gain some real world experience. Additionally you may find that only an international program can offer the real expertise you desire in your education. Australia is a great place to find a marine biology program, the engineering labs in sweden may exceed your facilities at your home institution, and peace studies in Geneva would offer an insight that couldn't be matched in Nebraska.
Resume building - International experience is ranked high among many employers as a critical asset for prospective employees. Study abroad shows that you are resourceful, adventurous, internationally minded, and diverse.
Experience of a lifetime - In a couple years you will forget the name of your literature professor in Grenoble or the name of your dorm in Beijing, but you'll never forget the friends you made or the incredible experiences you shared.
