Online study abroad programs have grown increasingly popular as more students look to combine travel with education. From short-term volunteer courses that focus on sustainable development to university-accredited long-term international internships, these virtual experiences offer students a great way to build real world skills and experiences that make your resume shine brightly. With programs varying in terms of length and discipline it’s essential that before committing to one you consider what you hope to get out of your virtual experience.
No matter your experience level in travel, studying abroad can open doors to new connections across nations and cultures while broadening your horizons of global issues and reminding you just how small our world really is. Additionally, studying abroad provides an ideal chance to hone communication and cultural competencies that could prove invaluable in many careers and businesses.
Not everyone may feel they need or desire to study abroad, given its financial and academic obligations; for those that can, it can provide a truly life-altering educational experience – and leave you with lasting memories!
