While pursuing a higher education, there are a multitude of different options in the world to choose from. Given all the choices that you have, chances are you’ll consider the option of studying abroad at some point. For some, this may seem an impractical or unrealistic opportunity but the rewards of such an endeavour are well worth the effort.
One of the most common reasons people consider studying abroad, and coincidentally one of the biggest benefits it has, is simply the chance to see the world. Taking the chance to experience a new country is something that will stick with you all throughout your life.
It’s the best opportunity there is to experience a new culture, meet new people, and discover new interests you’d never considered before. There are other practical benefits as well, such as experiencing new styles of education and honing your language skills. These kinds of experiences can also go a long way towards attracting future employers or towards getting into a graduate school.
… See the world!
The most common reason people choose not to study abroad is the apprehension to be so far from home. Sadly, this is something that many who do leave their home countries find rough and it’s definitely something to keep in mind. Leaving behind the life we know can be scary, and we’re bound to miss home from time to time. When you compare that to the sheer amount you stand to gain though, the experience is well worth taking that plunge.
Most students come away learning and experiencing things they would never have known otherwise. For most, home will still be there when you’re finished and some may even discover a new home waiting for them.
