EURES - European Employment Services - is a cooperation network designed to facilitate the free movement of workers within the European Economic Area;Switzerland is also involved. Partners in the network include public employment services, trade union and employers' organisations. The network is coordinated by the European Commission.

EURES is a place for Jobseekers, Employers, to get information on Living&Working opportunities and also for Learning opportunities.

The rapid rate of change and development makes it necessary to constantly acquire and enhance knowledge and skills throughout one's life. Lifelong learning is one of the foundations for lifelong employability.

Studying in another country may, in addition, be an enriching experience that helps to develop important transnational competences.

The Learning section of the EURES Job Mobility Portal, which is provided by PLOTEUS, a service of the European Commission, contains information on education and training opportunities throughout Europe, such as websites of higher education institutions, databases of training courses, schools, etc.

About learning opportunities

Study abroad
Living and studying in a foreign country is the best way to gain in-depth knowledge of another culture's customs, people, and language. In addition, living and studying or working in another country can develop important transnational competences that may be of interest to future employers.

Students who return from a programme of study abroad often see it as an experience which matured them personally and intellectually. They appreciate being exposed to new ways of thinking and living, which encourages personal development and self-reliance.

Study abroad can do more than encourage academic enrichment and personal development;it also can enhance employment prospects. Employers are increasingly seeking people who have experience of other countries, since they are likely to possess, apart from language skills, cross-cultural communication skills, an understanding of and familiarity with local customs and cultural contexts, flexibility, resilience, and the ability to adapt to new circumstances and deal constructively with different points of view.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
