Globalisation is changing the way in which the world works.
Employers are now searching for candidates with global competencies e.g. intercultural awareness, global understanding, the ability to communicate across cultures to name a few. In 2013 the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) surveyed recruiters and found that two thirds of employers want to see some form of international experience on the CVs of candidates. Consequently, the demand from employers for candidates to have international experience has grew because of the rising number of students taking part in exchange programmes, undertaking a gap year, or becoming more globally aware through globalisation and exposure to working globally through their parents careers.
Employers haven’t identified exactly what type of international experience they want to see, but studying a degree could be one of the most structured and safest way to gain that experience. The British Council have recently addressed the growing need to internationalise British students through study abroad including exchange programmes.
Furthermore, PwC estimates that 50% of the number workers who will take on global assignments will rise by 50% over the next 10 years! So, some form of international exposure must be factored into your career development!
International Education Week in the UK aims to educate young people around the reasons why students should consider getting an international experience and to do that through studying abroad.
