Dear WR experts,
Could you please tell me which preposition I should use before "students": to or for?
She strongly advised to participate international exchange programmes, especially to/for students dreaming about an academic career.
Thank you for attention!
Regards,
Elena

    I'd say both are possible. But "for" is probably more likely.

    To - Her advice was especially directed to/at students dreaming about academic careers.
    For - Her advice was that participating in international exchange programmes was especially important for students dreaming about academic careers.

    I agree you could possibly use either, but I think 'for' is best, too.

    The sentence is a little confusing, since it might be read "advised .... to students," which we do not use in AE.
