Placements abroad

A placement is good for your CV and development, but have you ever considered a placement abroad? With the internationalization of higher education, it has become increasingly easy for students to spend time studying abroad. This is not only a valuable experience that helps to strengthen your CV, but is also useful in terms of your personal development.


There are costs associated with studying or following a placement abroad. On My University you can find information about grants, prizes and funding. Find out about this well in advance – the deadlines for many grant applications are well before you actually go abroad. It’s also a good idea to apply for more than one grant at the same time. You will stand the best chance if your application aligns with the target group for the funding.
