XBL’S SIX BENEFITS OF STUDYING ABROAD

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. Students who study overseas become explorers of their host country and really discover the curiosity and excitement that they have held within all these years.

Why students need to explore conferences while studying

Many students do not know the benefits of travelling for international conferences during their studies. In my time as an undergrad, I did not explore the freedom of travel available to me, thus missing out on the rich cultural experience that I could have gotten through travelling. During my Masters degree in China, I decided to apply to the St. Gallen symposium in Switzerland, and my essay was selected among the top submissions and I was invited to St. Gallen University, fully sponsored.

Attending international conferences has really helped me in my career, placing me ahead of other candidates during job interviews and also broadening my scope. Since 2014, I have been to several dozen conferences fully sponsored and I have not had to pay for these events. Many students wonder if it were possible for one to travel to different countries of the world, without having to pay for same. I have proven this several times over by visiting over seven (7) different countries, fully funded.

In this post, I will be providing links to websites where you can get these conferences

  2. https://www.alphagamma.eu/

3. https://www.opportunitiesforafricans.com/category/scholarships/

4. http://internationalcareersfestival.org/

The value that attending international conferences add to your career development cannot be overemphasised, thus it is advisable to try applying as soon as you can. You can also apply to conferences outside your study area, as most of the fully-funded opportunities I have personally participated in are in the business field (whilst being an engineer).

Should you need help with applying to an international conference or event, email us at contact@xblimited.com and one of our advisors will be happy to help you out.
