Why Study Abroad?
Regardless of age, educational or professional background, studying abroad is a life changing experience that allows you to learn a foreign language where it is spoken. These are five of the main reasons why:
Personal and professional growth
Studying and living abroad help us develop as citizens of the world and become more independent and resilient, all good qualities that employers look for when reviewing CVs.
Cross cultural understanding
In today’s globalised world, it is increasingly important to understand other people and their cultural backgrounds. Studying abroad can be very effective here, as it is when helping us build tolerance.
Building your own international network of friends and connections is very valuable in the long term. It could open doors to new opportunities in the future.
Having a second (or third) language can easily help you achieve your career goals by having access to a new array of international university degrees. And the post-study opportunities will certainly double.
Bilingual or multilingualism
Being bilingual not only means highly developed communication skills; studies show that it also has positive effects on our concentration, memory and the agility of our thinking processes.
