Because it includes a mandatory work placement abroad. Which is great, because I do not think I would have taken the initiative to obtain experience by my free will. But I'm glad because a friend of mine (one year older) managed to get a pretty sweet internship in New Zealand that kinda changed his life. He found it through some website, called Internship Provider (http://www.internshipprovider.com/inter ... ew-zealand
) and it's really funny because, looking at it, I would have never guessed that it would be able to arrange it. But at least now I know that I can always contact the same company in NZ next year, when it's my turn, and actually save some cash by doing it on my own.
