Advantages of studying abroad
Study abroad offers skills that are relevant not just to one semester, but to your entire life. In today’s increasingly globalised world, whatever work you go on to do, you’ll likely find yourself traveling, whether for business, further study, or simply to experience other cultures. If you’ve studied abroad you’ve gained aptitudes that are transferrable to virtually any place or situation: you’re sensitive to cultural differences and better able to adapt as necessary. Study abroad has likely improved your ability to speak another language and to learn new ones as needed; it’s also given you the experience of working with non-native English speakers. Even if you never travel abroad again, you’ll find yourself drawing on these skills, and, more generally, on the adaptability and flexibility that living abroad teaches.
