Re: Accepting an Erasmus Mundus programme on a self funding basis- Is it worth it?

In my opinion, it would only be worth it if you can find work in Europe after your programme. Find out how the industry is doing and if they're hiring.

Fresh graduate

Do you prefer people with more work experience? Do grades bear a huge weight? I only have a year and a summer left before I g...

Note that the responses reflect my opinion. Should you have any ...
