INTERNATIONAL WORK PLACEMENTS
LISAA encourages each student to enrich their period of mobility by benefiting from professional immersion abroad. Through its extensive network of industry partners throughout the world, LISAA aims to further develop its collaboration with these companies.
REASONS TO TRAVEL ABROAD
To enrich studies with new experiences
By developing its international dimension, LISAA enables students who wish to internationally to acquire during their course the experience and skills they will need to do so, whilst encouraging them to discover different methods, cultures and perspectives, which will enrich their future professional practices.
To learn how to adapt
In addition to mastering language skills and discovering a country’s culture, international work placements enable students to acquire the skill of being able to adapt to new environments and a different lifestyle and job. This is a bonus for being able to respond to the needs of the current job market.
This experience is very enriching – from both a human relations and a professional point of view.
