Study Abroad Guide

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

February 2018

While parents may have reservations of sending their child away to a foreign country, there are several benefits that come with studying abroad. Whether you choose to study at an undergraduate or university level, a study abroad program will benefit you in several ways. It allows you to communicate across different cultures, and simultaneously boosts your overall personality. Listed below are reasons why you should consider a degree abroad.

Study Abroad Destinations

Explore a different culture

Studying in a new country gives you the opportunity to witness an entirely different culture. Trying out the different types of local food and learning about the customs and traditions of your new home country is not something that you experience everyday. Studying abroad will leave you with fond memories and the chance to experience life overseas.

Meet new people

Friendships you make with people when studying abroad will last you all through your university life and for years to come. Meeting new people is part of your study abroad experience and is something you will always cherish your entire life.

Learn the local language

One of the great things about studying abroad is being able to learn the local language. Students that have travelled and studied abroad found that by conversing with the locals on a daily basis, they were able to master the language alot sooner than expected. Learning the local language comes with several added advantages, for starters it makes you desirable to potential employers.

Celebrate different festivities

By choosing to study abroad, you experience the joy of celebrating festivals different from the ones you have back home. Participate in the Easter egg hunt or indulge in a home cooked thanksgiving meal. Embracing different festivities enables you to learn all about the country you now call home.


Traveling to neighbouring countries when abroad is the perfect opportunity to explore different parts of the world. Not only is it a great change in scenery, but traveling in between semesters is invigorating.
