Jeffrey Hsu: I was able to experience a lot of the buildings that my lectures and teachers were talking about in lectures, not just seeing them on the screen. A lot of your employers will consider that to be really important to who you are as an architect.
Elizabeth Subramaniam: Professionally these experiences have greatly added to my resume. When I meet with people about potential jobs, or when I'm just networking we end up spending the entire time discussing my experiences abroad.
Lucy Stephen: Professionally I've gotten to meet mentors that I know will be there for my entire life time. Hundreds of RMIT students have worked and researched with companies such as Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, BMW and Nestle in some of the world's beautiful locations.
Elizabeth Subramaniam: It's opened doors for me, I have been offered a position overseas at the company that I worked for and it's also just helped me develop as a person learning about what direction I want to take my career.
Dante Ceccon: I feel like London is now a second home. I can navigate my way around London probably better than I can navigate my way around Melbourne.
Narrator: So whether you are an undergrad, postgrad or research student the opportunities are there for the taking
Lucy Stephen: Should you be offered such an opportunity, go for it and embrace the experience.
Elizabeth Subramaniam: Every student should make the most of the opportunities they get while they're at university and one of the biggest things that you can do for yourself, personally and professionally, is to go abroad.
