There are several possibilities for giving your education an international twist
During the course of your education at UCN you can go abroad for a certain period of time. You can go on an internship abroad in one or more companies or you can take your studies abroad.
The two kinds of placements can even be combined so you can do both. Be aware that the time spent abroad may not prolong the total duration of your studies in Denmark, however.
Why go abroad?
Whether you choose to do an internship or to study abroad, you will no doubt develop — personally as well as professionally. You will broaden your horizons and develop your language and professional skills.
This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to challenge yourself, to increase and develop your intercultural competencies — and an opportunity to return enlightened and enriched.
You will also add an international dimension to your CV.
Most contemporary businesses need employees possessing intercultural competencies gained in today’s multi-cultural world.
An internship abroad will improve your ability to consider matters from an innovative and different perspective.
