Our students have the opportunity of studying abroad in order to accumulate experience of other cultures, develop an international network and improve their subsequent career prospects.
Exchanging ideas with people from other cultures and whose mother tongue we do not share is a commonplace occurrence for many of us in today’s globalised working environment. That is why international experience is an important factor in achieving professional success.
Internationalism and multilingualism are central to the teaching, research and professional training activities carried out by the School of Applied Linguistics. A variety of exchange programmes and networks enable the School to promote the mobility of its students, academic researchers and teaching staff. It helps them to extend their horizons beyond linguistic and geographical frontiers, either through personal contacts, time spent in other countries or attendance at conferences and other events focusing on subjects of international cultural interest.
