International Exchange

What are the benefits of international exchange study? You experience different cultures and languages, and make new friends from all over the world. You can better appreciate cultural diversity and international exchange experiences help students become more independent, better at solving problems, and better at facing new challenges. When you are carving a career path after you graduate from StFX, the fact that you have been successful living and learning in another country will say that you like a challenge and can adapt successfully to new social and cultural environments. These are the kind of ‘soft skills’ that employers and graduate programs value in addition to academic accomplishments.
