    Go Abroad Fair: are you ready to start your next international experience?

    The Go Abroad Fair will take place on Thursday, 14 October 2021 from 11:00-16:00 at the Study Guidance Centre.
    The fair will have stands from several organisations who will share their offer with you, be it for an exchange for studies, traineeships or volunteering! And this during, or even after your current VUB studies. And also, there'll be a chance for you to win prizes if you play our quiz on the day at the Study Guidance Centre, so plenty of reasons to drop by and have a look!

    On the day itself, we'll have a Go Abroad info session where staff members from the VUB International Relations office will provide you with the necessary information and will answer your questions about the Go Abroad experience. The session will be on Campus in the Study Guidance Center, Building F, from 12h00 until 13h00. The number of participants is limited to ensure the safety of all. If you cannot join us on Campus, you can always attend the Online Info Session on Friday 15 October 2021 from 12:00-13:00. Register here for one of the two sessions

    Want to know what options there are for you to go abroad for studies or internships within your study programme? Then check the faculty info sessions on your go abroad-options!

    Going Abroad: What's in it for you?

    There are loads of opportunities to go abroad while you are studying at VUB and loads of good reasons why you should look into it. Figures have shown that those who do spend time abroad:

    • double their chances of employment a year after graduation
    • 1/3 of Erasmus+ trainees are offered jobs in the company where they worked
    • Erasmus+ alumni find their first job faster and tend to earn 25% more
    • 3/4 employers say volunteering is a + for job seekers *

    Going abroad allows you to:

    • create an international mindset
    • develop a global network of friends
    • see the world while studying or doing an internship
    • grab a once in a lifetime opportunity
    • increase your self-confidence
    • improve your language skills.
