Mobility boosts students' fitness for the workplace, according to a visitor from one of Switzerland's top universities.
Professor Robert Buttery spoke with students and faculty at CQUniversity Rockhampton to encourage student exchanges with partner universities.
"As a result of the bilateral agreement between CQUniversity and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland, your students can experience study in Europe and accumulate academic credit for their home degree with a fee waiver at our university, apart from travel and accommodation costs," he said.
"Students who are well-equipped for the global workplace have a distinct advantage in the job market. Switzerland is ideally positioned with its pole position in global economy rankings and a world-class education system to enhance a student's opportunities."

Professor Buttery's institution is based in the Basel area and has three campuses located in towns easily reached by train in under 30 minutes..
UAS Northwestern Switzerland has schools in the areas of Psychology, Business, Engineering, Life Sciences, Social Work, Art and Design, Music, Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics, and Teacher Education.
