This module is aimed at students availing of the Eramus exchange program to study in an English speaking college abroad.  It aims to expose students to a new culture, to enhance their technical and business skills in a new environment and to afford them the opportunity to learn a new language.

Destination institutes should be appropriate to the language the learner is studying, however it is not limited to this so that those not studying a language may also apply.  Typically only partner institutions that deliver content through English will be considered.
