As your peers are settling into their local universities, preparing for internships and dreaming about future careers, you could already be planning your big move – perhaps to a destination far from home and their parents’ raised eyebrows – you may have decided that studying Bachelor or Under Graduate abroad could be best suited to you.
Studying abroad as an undergraduate or postgraduate will not only expand your skill set, but will also give you a broader outlook of the world and global outlook that can only benefit your future career – no matter which path it takes you down after graduation. A foreign degree also gives you a competitive edge back home or beyond!
Dependent upon where you study, Bachelor or Undergraduate degrees abroad typically last three to four years full time. Most universities will ask you to select a subject (major) for which your degree will focus upon; some require this selection upfront, while others may allow it later on during a program.
Studying abroad as part of your Bachelor or Undergraduate education offers both an exciting academic experience and the chance to travel. Not only will you get to explore natural wonders, museums and landmarks of your host nation but also experience its languages, customs and cultures first hand – giving an incredible insight into how different people live their lives as well as different views they may hold on some of life’s key issues.
Experience new sports such as hiking or snow skiing and entertainment options such as plays, movies and dance clubs; dining out at restaurants and nightclubs and trying out local cuisine will all provide opportunities to test yourself as you adapt to a foreign culture while creating many wonderful memories you will look back upon in years to come.
Additionally, studying abroad offers personal and academic advantages; moreover, degrees from foreign universities will significantly expand your employment prospects. Employers recognize the higher quality teaching standards at overseas universities which makes their degrees even more desirable; furthermore, it demonstrates to them your strong work ethic and dedication towards reaching your goals – qualities employers look for when hiring employees.
