Measuring the Impact on Students of Abroad Experiences in Europe 2020

Our second annual study surveyed almost 500 students in an effort to uncover trends and correlation between these study abroad and intern abroad experiences and its impact on their skill development and career trajectory.

Our new set of qualitative data is a collection of students who studied abroad or interned in Europe and seeks to gain a greater understanding of the perceived impact of an international experience. Our study compares the answers from our 2019 survey to compare the two data sets. 

Our research conveys how international experiences in Europe impact transferable skill development and other key educational and career-based competencies. With two years of proprietary qualitative data, we wish to continue sharing the findings of our research year over year to help inform the study abroad/intern abroad community to aid in the continued development of these programs.
