The project will help to increase the quality of practical training of students. Students will pass their mandatory practice abroad and learn about the real working life. Foreign experience perfectly fits into the concept of preparation of our students because of their focus on international trade and multimedia. Experience abroad is irreplaceable for them. Thanks to stay abroad, participants will receive a new experience, knowledge and skills that they will later use in their future study, at work and in their private lives. Participants will try out independent living abroad, get to know their strengths and weaknesses, improve their English and job mobility.
