By living and studying in a foreign culture, you don't only learn here at Jönköping but the world becomes your campus. You won't only learn through your formal academic study but you also learn by connecting with communities, other educational systems, and cultures. You learn about how people in other countries think, live, create, and do business. In addition, you can begin to build up an international network of contacts that will be of value once you enter the working world.
A study abroad experience forces you to be innovative and independent, take initiative, and make new friends. It is not always easy, but it is most definitely worth it!
And of course studying overseas is FUN! Students learn about the ways and customs of another country, from its folk songs and dances, to it's health or business practices, educational methods, and it's etiquette and cuisine. Students often rave about their experiences and applaud the educational benefits.
