The opportunity for international study at one of our partner universities in the USA, Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan or Korea is one of the great benefits of the BA CATS degree. Among the many advantages of international study, students develop a great sense of self-confidence and achievement having mastered living and studying overseas away from the security of family and friends. Additionally, the opportunity to meet students from various backgrounds and cultures, to see amazing sites and experience fantastic adventures informs the perspective of the global citizens our students will become!
Employers also immediately recognise the value of the skills developed by a graduate who has studied overseas, including: adaptability; flexibility; determination; ability to take risks; interpersonal skills and communication skills; independence and an open mind!
