dc.description.abstract Mobility programmes in higher education have become an option for academic development and a driver of future professional careers of Spanish university students. Therefore, some universities offer specific courses to prepare students in mobility skills. The present study focused on different factors that are relevant for students who have participated in the course 'Intercultural competences for labor insertion: strategies for adaptation', offered by the University of Valencia. In particular, the study was carried out through a questionnaire that analyses whether students participating in the course (first edition) show intercultural and transversal competencies that encourage a positive attitude towards academic and work mobility. Results indicate that students who intend to apply for a mobility scholarship and seek employment outside of Spain are less emotionally stable. In addition, students who have a greater willingness to seek employment outside Spain have developed their professional and vital project to a lesser extent. Students who are more open-minded adapt better to new situations, have daily relationships with people from other cultures, and feel more prepared professionally. Finally, the most independent students adapt better to new situations, and those who have contact with people from other cultures work better as a team, interact better socially, and adapt to new situations more easily. We conclude this study by emphasizing that intercultural and other transversal competencies allow students who intend to study or work abroad to prepare better, academically and professionally, for mobility.
