Here is an article, originally Tweeted by Dr Sonal Minocha, (Pro Vice Chancellor at BU) that highlights statistics supporting studying abroad and in particular how Erasmus students were more likely to get a job.
Other interesting findings were that more than 1 in 3 Erasmus students who took a job placement abroad were hired or offered a position by their host company, and 1 in 10 started their own company. On top of this, the unemployment rate of Erasmus students five years after graduation is 23% lower than the norm.
