Are you looking for a break from 9-5? Or with the end of your studies finally in sight you may be wondering what exactly is it that you are supposed to do now? Or are you looking to do a year abroad as part of your studies, or even before you start your studies, in an exciting and challenging environment?

What better way to gain valuable work experience in the field than taking on this challenging and CV-boosting professional role!
