Study exchange is a great way to travel for experience, learn new skills, improve your language skills, and get to know other cultures. In addition, research shows that study exchange can be a decisive factor in achieving a desired career as it shows a candidate’s courage and openness to other cultures.

Kaunas University of Technology International Relations Department reminds all interested in study exchange to apply by February 25. Those, willing to go for an internship abroad should apply by March 1.

“During my studies, I participated in the blended intensive learning programme, which allowed me to not only travel to Portugal to study but also travel around Europe for a month. I visited the Azores, where I swam in the ocean with dolphins, and watched whales and volcanic geysers. Such moments make student life brighter,” says Iryna Bielotska from Ukraine, who has just graduated with a master’s in Public Policy and Security.

All KTU students must do a professional internship to complete their degree. Why not take this to the next level and choose a professional internship in a company abroad? Think about the diversity and amount of possibilities that are waiting for you out there!

A good place to start looking for those places is the catalogue of traineeship offers abroad, which you can find here.

“Adapting to a new culture and professional environment was challenging but rewarding,” says Wren Francis Alumkal Thomas, a final-year student of Informatics.

During his internship at AB InBev’s Prague Digital Hub in the Czech Republic, Wren Francis worked on data automation and migration, which added to his academic knowledge of the data analysis field.
