Studying abroad has become a norm for students hoping to travel the world, broaden their career goals, understand different cultures, develop their interpersonal skills, and gain newer skill sets for a successful career path ahead.
Globalize yourself by studying in a foreign setting. Expand your horizons and explore different cultures, world-views, and communities by immersing yourself in a study abroad program.
What Can Study Abroad Programs Offer?
The answer differs from program to program. Some study abroad programs are designed to directly immerse yourself in their foreign culture and language with various co-curricular activities; some employ hands on experience with activities that ease you into a culture shock; while others involve rigorous study of foreign history and visits to different communities and cultural monuments.
What Can You Gain From a Study Abroad Program?
By selecting the right program, one that fits your personality and which you believe will help you achieve your career goals, you can:
- Broaden the scope of your career, its path, and goals.
- Develop extensive interpersonal skills by interacting with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and belief systems
- Forces you from your comfort zone. Studying abroad forces you to accept real life challenges of re-situating in a different country and environment, and as a result, significantly boosts your self-confidence.
- Creates a sense of individuality —interacting with people from a different culture forces you see your culture and yourself in a different light.
