Gain a World-Class Education
Not that you need an excuse to fly to a country other than your own in the bid to gain a world-class education, but our list of reasons to study abroad is up in case you’re not convinced at all.
And for those who have studied abroad, let us know if you can think of more good reasons to move abroad to study and whether you actually agree with the list or not.
1. Looks Good on Your CV
Employers appreciate international living experience as it demonstrates your capacity to adjust to other cultures and that you have dealt with them in the past. It’s quite impressive progress if you can travel to a new nation and learn the necessary skills to land a respectable graduate job at the same time.
2. Upgrade Your Linguistic Skills
Do you still recall the foreign languages you studied in school? I don’t, either. Studying abroad is a great way to refresh them; you might be surprised at how much you recall. It might also be a wonderful way to meet new people to enrol in additional language programmes while you’re travelling.
3. Completely Different to a Holiday
You’ll really get to spend some time in the area where you’ll be studying, learning things like where to get the finest coffee, what tourist traps to avoid, and how to make the most of your new city.
4. Make Friends for Life
Even though you might not click with everyone you meet, there’s a decent chance you’ll make at least one buddy for life (assuming you’re excellent at staying in touch, that is). A shared overseas study experience is a fantastic approach to develop close relationships with other students.

5. And Not to Forget, The Cuisines!
Get more paella, poutine, pierogi, schnitzel, shawarma, chimichanga, katsudon, bobotie, and baklava in your life (replace as necessary).
6. Different Ways to Learn and Study
People who study abroad frequently encounter radically different teaching methods. Although intimidating, this will also broaden your perspective on how you can learn.
7. Become Independent
You must be independent while studying and living abroad because you won’t have access to your familiar comforts. Consider this a novel, interesting challenge (rather than something terrifying).
The ultimate self-reliance test is moving overseas. You’ll probably become less dependent on other people and more self-reliant when (or if) you return.
9. Consider Your Own Culture From a New Angle
It’s simple to take your own culture for granted, but expatriating can help you create your own perspectives on your own culture rather than just accepting those that are based on where you happen to be from.
