"Why should students go abroad for placement? Because in addition to all of the qualities of carrying out a placement in the UK, such as industrial experience, career progression and meeting new people foreign placements also give you a fantastic insight into the culture and language, chances to visit famous European landmarks and cities and looks great on your CV"
