Moreover, the schools offer good sporting facilities and a large number of sports clubs are open to foreign students. International students obviously also have access to basic services at the school such as the library, IT rooms with an internet connection and free email. Finally, studying at one of these schools means that students have access to a large alumni network which may come in useful for employment at the end of the degree.
