More than half of young British people wish they had moved abroad to work or study.

A survey by the British Council showed that 54% of young Britons who had not studied or worked abroad believed their career prospects would be better if they had.

But only 21% of young people had spent a continuous period of six months or more abroad.

“The good news is that this poll shows people are beginning to recognise how vital international skills are for enhancing their career," said Dr Jo Beall of the British Council.
