An international exchange has many benefits. Functioning in a different living and musical environment could change your musical development in important ways. You could even choose to focus your exchange on certain aspects of your studies in ways that you could not pursue at your home institution. An exchange will give you the opportunity to gain more insight into the international music field and the flexibility that is needed from you as a musician. This will be to your benefit, since the music profession is nowadays becoming more and more international.
You will discover more not only about the world, but even about yourself. It is a challenge that strengthens your self-confidence, widens cross-cultural insight, shapes your goals, and positively influences your future. An exchange is also a good method to develop your network of personal and professional contacts!
