The fact that international mobility offers a fundamental added value, both for students and teachers, is absolutely clear. A well-framed study / internship or teaching period abroad gives you a privileged view of the educational affairs or field of work in the country in question. It sharpens your international and intercultural skills, including your fluency in foreign languages. The international perspective opens up new doors within your field.

Numerous Howest graduates testify that the opportunities on the labor market increase for those who have learning or work experience abroad. Employers appreciate typical qualities of mobility students: flexibility, entrepreneurship, mobility, self-reliance and language skills. Furthermore, such an international period broadens your outlook, creates new friendships, teaches you how to deal with diversity and intercultural dialogue, and promotes independence, assertiveness and maturity.
