What are the benefits of studying abroad?

Benefits of study abroad

Studying abroad can be a ‘yay’ or a ‘nay’ for some people. Just like everything else, studying abroad has its pros and cons. Be it a one-semester exchange program or a full degree course, studying abroad brings about many benefits – both short term benefits as well as benefits which can last a lifetime.


A brand new study experience!

When you study in another country that’s not your own, you gain experiences which your friends back home would never be able to experience. Studying abroad provides you the richest educational experiences any student could ever have. You will benefit by learning from lecturers and professors who may very well have a broader knowledge and teaching skills.


Personal development

Independence is a must if you wish to study abroad. Living in a foreign country without your family by your side, you have no choice but to stand on your own two feet and be an independent individual. It may seem challenging at first, but as you adapt, you will find yourself growing to become more confident as you begin managing your own finances, arranging your own accommodation, buying groceries, planning your own meals…etc. You will also find yourself getting used to new environments more easily than before. The ability to adapt makes you flexible and open to changes.


These are the skills which will stay with you for a lifetime.


You get a better looking CV!

The working world is getting more and more competitive by the day. The great increase in the number of degree holders does make work applications lightly more challenging than before. With an overseas degree as part of your resume, you already have the upper hand compared to those who don’t. You have more variety in terms of experience and knowledge. This is definitely a plus point for you in the future!


Travel while you’re young!

First of all, studying in a foreign country gives you a license to be an unofficial tourist. You can save on air tickets and kill two birds with one stone – study and travel at the same time. Being able to travel is one of life’s many privileges. Traveling increases your insights on different culture and tradition, and it opens up your mind and eyes. The experience that you gain through traveling will give you new perspectives about life and studies.


There are many more benefits as to what studying abroad can give you. If this is what you are planning to do, then brace yourselves for an adventure of a lifetime!
