Reasons to Study Abroad
Make friends from all over the world
Education abroad would help make friends not only with the citizens of that country, but also with students from all over the world. Most universities abroad have international student friendly environments that would include students from different parts of the world.
Gain a new perspective
Living an independent life in an unfamiliar land is scary but at the same time, exciting. The cross-cultural experiences one would have studying abroad would help widen horizons and gain necessary life skills.
Multitude of choices
Universities abroad sometimes offer courses that are not offered at colleges in India. The exact major one might be looking for could be available only in another country. International universities otherwise also have more courses and specialties to choose from.
Learn a new language
Studying in a foreign country would require one to interact with home-towners and thus it provides a wonderful opportunity to learn a new language. If not that, it would help a student improve greatly in a language that he or she already knows.
Walking down another country’s rich history and past can be done, literally! This is usually the most compelling reason for studying abroad. Visiting historical sites as well as other parts of the country would let students relax and absorb the cultural heritage of the country.
Experience a different education system
Students can compare the education system in their own country with the systems in other countries and help take the best out of both. Students can also learn about different ways through which learning can be done.
Enhance job opportunities
Career opportunities greatly improve as employers look out for independent candidates who have had worldly experiences. A short or long study gig abroad would look impressive on a resume. The time at a foreign country would make one a competent global citizen.
Have the experience of a life-time
Life could get a bit hectic after college. So it is practical to do the things one wants while they are still young and energetic. The invigorating experiences at a college abroad during the formative years of one’s life would truly prove to be beneficial in the long run.
Even if these reasons to study abroad are not convincing enough, do it anyway! There is always the option to return and continue higher studies in home country, but even a few weeks in a foreign country may change one’s mind.
