In addition to being an extremely fun experience, studying abroad is also a smart move for students. Research conducted by the European Commission has shown that young people who have studied abroad have a better chance of securing a steady job later on. Therefore the Belgium government would like more students to spend an educational period abroad. More and more young professionals are adventurous and internationally oriented and want to explore their work skills beyond borders. Belgium employees are popular among the foreign employers because they are flexible, work well together with other cultures and have excellent language skills.
