Not that you need an excuse to go to a distant nation to get a world-class education, but if you’re still not convinced, here’s our list of 25 reasons to study abroad.
And, for those who have already studied abroad, please let us know if you have any other good reasons to study abroad and whether you agree with the list thus far!
1. It will look nice on your resume.
Employers value international living experience since it demonstrates that you have dealt with individuals from other cultures and have more extraordinary adaptability.
You’re doing fairly well if you can go to a new place while learning skills for a solid graduate job.
2. Practice your linguistic skills
Do you recall the foreign languages you learned in school? No, neither do I. Studying abroad might refresh them; you might be surprised at how much you recall. Additional language classes while traveling can also be a terrific opportunity to meet new people.
3. Living in a foreign nation differs from going on a vacation.
You’ll actually experience your study location over time, learning things like where to get the most excellent coffee, what tourist traps to avoid, and how to make the most of your new city.
4. Meet a broad spectrum of people
Exposure to various individuals will not only help you develop your people skills but also provide you with a more in-depth understanding of others, particularly those from diverse cultures.
5. Make friends for life
You may not like everyone you meet, but odds are you’ll make at least one lasting friend (assuming you’re good at staying in touch). A shared international study experience is an excellent way to bond with classmates.
