An overseas placement allows you to experience a different culture, lifestyle and people while offering you the opportunity to practise the skills of your profession and gain practical experience in another part of the world.
More than anything, studying overseas is an opportunity to learn about yourself, discover new strengths and abilities, conquer new challenges and solve new problems. You will encounter situations that are wholly unfamiliar to you and will learn to adapt and respond in effective ways.
