Why Study with AIM Overseas
Employers value and recognise the importance of cross-cultural understanding. It shows that you have experience and the ability to interact with different individuals, a higher level of adaptability and to learn quickly, gain invaluable skills such as team work, communication, critical thinking and problem solving.
Become More Certain About Your Degree
If you are unsure where you are heading with your degree and need more clarity then an AIM overseas program is the perfect choice. You will be exposed to things you wouldn’t normally experience back at home in Australia, giving you a different perspective, excitement and motivation to want to finish your degree when you get back home.
Develop Personal Skills
You will learn so much more about yourself as you are throwing yourself into a completely new environment it will help you figure out what your strengths and weaknesses are, become more independent through stepping outside of your comfort zone, a greater appreciation for things, gain a global mind-set to back up arguments, your beliefs, and to steer your future.
Learn From Esteemed Academics
Be taught by some of the best lecturers in your chosen topics and have access to more information you may of never come across back home in Australia. You will gain an advantage over your peers back at home by having the extra knowledge and experience.
Broaden Your Network
AIM Overseas programs have led thousands of Australian university students to invaluable relationships with people from across the globe. Some connections can lead to career opportunities such as internships, job offers, and business partners.
Experience New Cultures and Perspectives
Develop a cross-cultural awareness, which can have a huge impact on how we react to different situations. Having a variety of perspectives will help broaden your horizon, look at different experiences in a new way, meet people from different upbringings. Being exposed to other cultures will make you feel more comfortable with people who are from different backgrounds which can help in future job opportunities if you work with a range of people by establishing a stronger relationship with them.
See the World!
Maybe you have never been overseas, or never been to a particular country, this is your chance! It allows you to travel to new, amazing places you may never have thought of before. You can go sightseeing, familiarise yourself with your surroundings, enjoy all of what that city has to offer. Have the opportunity to extend your trip and give yourself more time to explore, you may as well whilst you're already there!
"I would recommend AIM Overseas to anyone who is interested in studying abroad in any field as they offer many interesting programs. This experience has pushed me further to become the best young professional I can be, and has been invaluable to both my studies and confidence in more ways than one."

"Studying at the University of Cambridge in their summer science program has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. There is so much science history here and being able to live in this environment was extremely enriching and inspiring. I have developed a new passion for scientific research, its impact on society and the role I can play in the science community."
Cambridge Science Summer Program
"My experiences at Maastricht University exceeded my expectations. I loved the cold, learning about the European Union in the political environment it was situated in while also visting these places on my weekends (with the balance of recreational time). I learnt a lot, laughed a lot and ultimately loved the experience so much I have encouraged most people I know to do a short academic course with AIM!"
