The Erasmus+ website has some interesting case studies which gives great insight as to why students should participate.

Go International is really useful, with lots of perspective on going international especially the Student Perspectives Press Release on the home page.

Third Year Abroad offers lots of advice on what to do before you go, when you arrive, and when you return to the UK, as well as a Year Abroad Survival guide, and 100 reasons to study abroad in the first instance.
