Spending a summer abroad is by no means the same as emigrating, but it does give students and young people a taste for other countries and cultures, and could help them generate ideas about where they would like to live after they graduate.

This week in the discussion forum we want to know your thoughts on summers abroad. If you are a student, tell us how you’re spending your summer. Are you on an internship in London that will boost your career prospects, or a boozy working holiday in California? If you have been on one in the past, was it just a summer of fun or was it beneficial to you in any other way? Have your say in the comments section below.
