Study abroad can be one of the most life-altering decisions a student can make. According to an IES survey, 97% of study abroad students report their experience as “catalyzing increased maturity”, and 84% stated it helped develop job skills.
As our world becomes ever more interdependent, studying abroad is an amazing opportunity to broaden your horizons and build cross-cultural competency. Not only will you encounter diverse cultures, schools of thought and religions; you will also become more cognizant of global issues like terrorism, climate change, population growth etc.
Although study abroad experiences can be immensely enriching, making the transition can be daunting. The good news is there are numerous resources available to students looking to navigate their studies abroad experience successfully – be it help selecting programs or visa and immigration advice; someone will always be ready and waiting!
