The Erasmus programme has seen a boom in applications from UK students, particularly those from Scotland.
(PRWEB UK) 7 November 2013
It has been reported in Expat Forum that the Erasmus programme has seen a boom in applications from UK students, particularly those from Scotland, with an increase of 7%, up to 14,607. The scheme, which offers students at higher education institutions the opportunity to spend a year working or studying abroad, allows participants to obtain vital skills needed for competing in the global market. Erasmus is an important element of the government’s new Outward Student Mobility Strategy which was launched this year to persuade more students to study abroad.
Well known for their student European moving services, the team at Interdean were naturally pleased by the recent news. A representative from the firm explains some of the benefits of studying abroad.
“Studying abroad, whether for the entirety of your university course or just for a year or term, is certainly becoming more popular. At the same time as it is becoming more practical to do so, employers are recognising the qualities that these students often possess in terms of language and experience. It’s great to hear that as a nation we’re becoming more involved in initiatives like this. It’s particularly impressive to learn that the number of British students participating in the Erasmus scheme has doubled since 2006/2007.”
Interdean offers a full moving service for those considering studying abroad including shipping, road freight and overseas student storage services.
