Students taking part in the exchange programmes generally benefit from the following:
- exemption from enrolment/registration fees and tuition fees at the host university;
- assistance in finding accommodation (in most cases);
- recognition of credits earned abroad (subject to approval by the Board of Examiners);
- a contribution towards travel and accommodation costs (grant).
In addition, a number of universities provide language courses. This may be an intensive/’crash’ course before the start of the term in question, or a course lasting for the duration of your time at the host university.
A study period abroad can be a valuable experience for a number of reasons:
- your command of the language of the country in question will improve immensely;
- you will come into contact with the culture of a different country, a different way of life;
- you will have the opportunity to learn about a different legal system and legal culture;
- you will learn another legal language;
- it offers the opportunity to begin an international network of contacts, which can be very useful for your future career;
- it can make all the difference on the employment market.
