Study abroad is a most effective and intensive learning experience. A term or year spent overseas opens a window to the world which broadens international and intercultural awareness and sheds new light on preconceptions. International study brings fresh perspective to career choice, international understanding and human relationships. If students are to function effectively in the increasingly global economy, they need to acquire new perspectives, knowledge and skills to succeed.

Sup de Co, Rouen, France
