Four Reasons to Study your Degree in Another Country
Are you looking for a life changing experience?
Spending time living and studying abroad will change your life forever!
Here are 4 reasons why you need to study your degree abroad!
See The World From A Different Perspective!
Living in a different country and learning about other people’s life experiences and culture will help you to develop a rounded perspective on big and small issues. Stepping into another person’s shoes is more formally known as empathy. Being empathetic in a world filled with complexity will be a skill that separates you from the rest. By studying abroad you will develop more empathy because you will experience a new culture compared to the culture that you would by staying in your local.
Learn A Different Language!
In most cases when a Brit goes abroad, especially to their favourite holiday destination, they don’t need to speak another language. You can look at this in one of two ways depending on your perspective. However, as the world becomes more global we need additional languages. In most cases, the international universities that UK students consider will teach in English. Therefore, there isn’t a significant need to learn a new language but by living in a new country surrounded by students from all over the world you’ll have the opportunity to develop the basics. If you decide to take your new-found love of languages further than you’ll be able to. Remember that having an additional language makes you more employable!
Get Your Dream Job!
If you study abroad then you can work abroad too. Studying abroad sets you up for global life and career. When you study overseas you’ll be able to look at global internships with companies. Make an impression and this experience alone might be enough to land you a job in an international context. Depending on the university, you’ll be able to take advantage of international exchange programmes too. These opportunities are often highly competitive, highly lucrative, and will provide you with fantastic travel opportunities long after you graduate.
Become A More Resilient Person!
Resilience is a buzzword that everyone has heard of but do people know what it really means?
Studying in a different country will build your levels of resilience. All students will have to go through the process of making new friends, adjusting to university life, managing their living arrangements, but doing this in a completely new country will develop a greater degree of confidence that will help build character.
Studying abroad will present you with some of the most difficult, challenging moments that you will ever know. Those moments will shape and define your present and future. What those moments are we couldn’t possibly say but by finding new ways to deal with new and old challenges you become a much stronger person in the long term. If you can overcome such problems, you can overcome anything.
Studying abroad has been made possible by a global community of universities keen to diversify their student population. This makes studying abroad a once in a lifetime opportunity. Generations before haven’t had this privilege in the same way that today’s generation has it.
