Why Study Abroad

Students persistently ask themselves why should they study abroad and parents also ask the same questions as their wards.
There might be better and cheaper universities in your country where one can obtain a quality education.
Studying abroad has a better and an upper hand over what we do think about studying in your local universities, if you have the means and the resources.

 

Here are very excellent but few reasons why you should study abroad:

1. The learn language and different cultures.

    There is no better and more effective way to learn a language than to be immersed in a culture that speaks the language you are learning. You're surrounded by the language on a daily basis and are seeing and hearing it in the proper cultural context. A person's culture reflects very deep perceptions, beliefs and values that influence his or her way of life and the way that s/he views the world. Students who experience cultural differences personally can come to truly understand where other cultures are coming from.

    1. 2. The opportunity to travel.

    Weekends and academic breaks allow you to venture out and explore your surroundings - both your immediate and more distant surroundings. Since studying abroad often puts you on a completely different continent, you are much closer to places you might otherwise not have had the opportunity to visit. Some more structured study abroad programs even have field trips planned in or around the curriculum.

    • 3. Learn other cultures at hand.

    Cultural differences are more than just differences in language, food, appearances, and personal habits.

    • 4. Develop skills and experences a class room seting will not provide.

    Being immersed in an entirely new cultural setting is scary at first, but it's also exciting. It's an opportunity to discover new strengths and abilities, conquer new challenges, and solve new problems. You will encounter situations that are wholly unfamiliar to you and will learn to adapt and respond in effective ways.

    • 5. Have the opportunity to make friends around the world.

    While abroad, you will meet not only natives to the culture in which you are studying, but also other international students who are as far from home as yourself.

    • 6. Learn about yourself.

    Students who study abroad return home with new ideas and perspectives about themselves and their own culture. The experience abroad often challenges them to reconsider their own beliefs and values. The experience may perhaps strengthen those values or it may cause students to alter or abandon them and embrace new concepts and perceptions. The encounter with other cultures enables students to see their own culture through new eyes.

    • 7. Expand your worldview.

    In comparison with citizens of most other countries, Americans tend to be uninformed about the world beyond the nation's boundaries. Students who study abroad return home with an informed and much less biased perspective toward other cultures and peoples.

    • 8. Opportunity to breakout your academic routine.

    Study abroad is likely to be much unlike what you are used to doing as a student. You may become familiar with an entirely new academic system and you will have the chance to take courses not offered on your home campus. It's also a great opportunity to break out the monotony of the routine you follow semester after semester.

    • 9. Enhances empolyment opportunities.

    Did you know that only 4% of U.S. undergraduates ever study abroad? Yet, the world continues to become more globalized, American countries are increasingly investing dollars abroad, and companies from countries around the world continue to invest in the international market. Through an employer's says, a student who has studied abroad is self-motivated, independent, willing to embrace challenges, and able to cope with diverse problems and situations. Your experience living and studying in a foreign country, negotiating another culture, and acquiring another language will all set you apart from the majority of other job applicants.

    • 10. Enchance the value of our degree.

    While abroad, you can take courses you would never have had the opportunity to take on your home campus. In addition, study abroad gives your language skills such a boost that it is normally quite easy to add a minor in a language or even a second major without having to take many more additional courses after the return to your home campus.

    I hope with the above explanation, will help you to make the right decision on where to study and why you should study abroad.
