Work & Study Overseas

Many students and graduates travel abroad to either work or study. People choose to travel abroad either for casual work, placements, voluntary work or as part of a permanent relocation. Others may choose to study either as part of their degree or for further qualifications.

If you are planning on working abroad for the first time, studying in a different country, or are an international student returning to your home country it's essential that you do your research beforehand. As well as understanding the opportunities which exist and how job hunting or the educational system works in your chosen country, you also need to think about practical issues such as visas, wages and accommodation.
