I have something to compare. What offers EduCouncil, - this program features: learn about different cultures, with different professional environment through training, workshops and discussions. I would say that this is a real chance for professionals of all specialties! What can participate in such a program instructor? New contacts and new cases of the professional environment, and therefore the new own experience, knowledge, important facts and nuances.

Active program, filling, much is given. Gives a lot of the opportunities that active students can certainly use. And it's not entertainment. There are elements of training, it is very useful for students. Second-year students, which I supervise, this does not come across in the learning process. And I think because of this trip over the summer they rethink this experience and grow up.
Gani Sabiyev
Kazakh Technical University named after Satpayev, Master in Mining
An internship abroad is a perfect opportunity to improve English-language skills and to get acquainted with a system of higher education in the field of mining which is alternative to ours. During the programme we learned about new high-tech, specialised labs and developments in mining. A certificate from a European university is an important enrichment in an engineer career and contribution to a well-positioned job vacancy.
