Adjusting to Life While Studying Abroad

October 2017

While a study abroad program provides you with the opportunity to create new memories, it also allows you to witness life outside your home country. Stepping out of your comfort zone and keeping an open mind will help you adapt better to your new home. Additionally, you will also come to appreciate the country you're studying in. There are several ways you can adjust to a life abroad, mentioned below are some of them.

Study Abroad Programs

Explore Your Host Country

When studying in a foreign country, visiting landmarks and local markets is a great way of familiarising yourself with your surroundings. It allows you the opportunity to not just learn about the history and culture of your new home, but also a chance to witness a different way of life.

Get Involved

Another way of adjusting to life abroad is by getting involved in activities and events in your local community. Spend less time in your room and seek out people with similar interests. Joining a new sport or being part of a local club will help you expand your social network during your overseas program.

Stay Connected

There are several free video calling services you can use that will help you stay connected with family and friends. These services are not just a great source of communication, but also help relieve some of the anxiety of living in a new country. If you are in a different time zone, it is recommended that you create a schedule so that you can stay connected with loved ones back home.

Learn the Local Language

Learning the local language provides you with a deeper understanding of the country's culture, and also helps you better interact with the locals without having to worry about language barriers. Moreover, surrounding yourself with people that speak the native language is not just a great way of learning the language, but can also help you pick up commonly used phrases.
