for Career

There are many reasons why you might choose study abroad to enhance or develop your career options:

Foreign Language

The option to learn languages for personal and career opportunities is one of the best ways to get ahead in your career.In the 21st century you need every advantage you can get to keep yourself competitive in the marketplace, and adding foreign language skills is a great way to gain an advantage.
There are many industries in which adding a foreign language would immediately be useful. Tourism, hotels and restaurants, advertising, marketing, military and defence, security, communications and journalism, just to name a few. Being able to communicate with customers, clients and contacts in their own language, even just to put them at ease and make them more comfortable with you is clearly a great asset.
Career advancement. Knowledge of a foreign language can make you more valuable to your company, giving you a better chance of a promotion or a raise. You may also improve your potential for reassignment or relocation, and therefore also an increase in pay.

Vocational or Specialist

Vocational Education and Training (VET) system provides pathways for new entrants to the labour market, further training for those in employment or seeking a career change, and provides a pathway to higher education. VET, often referred to as Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) in some countries, provides individuals with the skills required in a modern economy and delivers training that is practical and career-oriented.
VET is very popular in Australia and has often been used as a pathway to migration in the past.

Migration

Starting a new life by emigrating to a foreign country is one of the most daunting things one can do. It is a fact that the goal emigration has been much harder to do in the recent times for two primary reasons. Selling houses and releasing capital has been a major issue for would be British migrants, coupled with fewer overseas job opportunities. So whilst countries such as Canada, Australia and New Zealand have made it much tougher to get in, Brits still want to go and, for those with the right skills that match the requirements of these countries, it remains very possible. The reasons Brits continue to leave are several, but include the fear of impending austerity measures, loutish behaviour and the lure of a perceived better lifestyle. So whilst emigration may remain tougher than it has been, there really could be a queue of frustrated Brits ready to leave for good.
