Choosing to study abroad is one of the most rewarding decisions you will ever make. A study abroad experience will benefit you in ways beyond your imagination and expectations. It will offer you an opportunity to discover a unique diversified culture, make lifelong friendships and connections, and receive an education that goes a long way in your holistic development. Studying abroad at a school that best matches your career goals will be a life-changing experience. Here are the top five reasons to study abroad:
If you study abroad – especially in developed countries – you will be exposed to a different, more mature style of learning. Chances are that you will be exposed to cutting edge research, case studies, experiential learning and lots of group activities. This is very different to what you might have experienced so far – and is often, a better way to learn.
Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to interact with local companies on and off campus, intern with them and build a profile that employers abroad seek. Thus, an overseas education is typically the easiest and most effective way to start your career abroad. On the other hand, even if you plan to make your career in India, the study abroad experience will make you more attractive to employers back home.
Studying abroad really brings out the best in students. You will learn how to manage your budget, solve problems on your own and in the process become more responsible. Truth be told – we believe that what you learn outside the classroom will eventually be more important than what you learn in the classroom!
An overseas education is an incredible opportunity to create an international circle of friends. You become friends with people in your classes, on your sports teams, in your neighbourhood, and in your student organization. Who knows, you may find your new best friend!
Studying abroad is one of the most eye-opening, mind-bending, life-changing experiences a student can have. Though it sounds cliché, your perspective on life will broaden in the time you spend abroad. This is because you will interact with people from multiple cultures, encounter divergent ways of thinking and learn to deal with people from different walks of life.
