BENEFITS OF STUDYING ABROAD
by Taiwo Adewale.
1) See the World
One major reason you should consider studying abroad is opportunity to see the world. Experiencing a completely new country with its natural environment, customs and activities. You have the opportunity to travel to the neighbouring countries as well. Studying abroad eliminates or decreases your chances of being denied visas if you hold a visa-requiring passport for most countries. Hence your mobility is unrestricted for you.
2) Experience a new culture
It is no news that you will meet international students like you from other cultural backgrounds and virtually all continents. Personally, I find it boring sitting in class to learn about other people’s culture so I had fun with my outside-of-class lectures from friends of diverse backgrounds. If you’re leaving your home for the first time to study abroad, you will certainly be blown away by the several cultural perspectives that you will find, from the foods, customs, traditions to the social atmospheres.
3) New Style of Learning/Education
Studying abroad opens you up to a wider range of teaching/lecturing styles. This allows for you to explore and choose which style is easiest for your assimilation. Also, you are likely more than not to be learn completely new things in your field of study.
4) Career Opportunity
Having a local education increases your chances of securing a job within your host country. This can only mean the beginning of your career advancement. If you choose to return home, your international experience will pave way for greater opportunities.
5) Hone your Language skills
If you are a huge fan of languages, then this is for you. A foreign country presents you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new language. In fact, being bilingual can land you a multimillion paying job, making you go beyond just the academic experience.
6) Personal Development
Being in a foreign country can be overwhelming, it tests your adaptability, tolerance, problem solving abilities and independence.
