Traveling abroad for a semester is a great way to learn more about the subjects you like and gain first-hand knowledge of other cultures, countries, and people who think differently.
But most of all, the experience helps you become more independent, mature, and tolerant. Ultimately, guess who values international experience and strength of character? Employers. In other words, traveling increases your chances of landing a good job.
You also gain self-confidence and get a new appreciation for your place of origin. Many LAU students who go abroad discover how well prepared they are for their classes — even better than local students in some cases.
