Advantages, Reasons and Benefits for Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is a life-changing experience that offers you a lot of personal and professional benefits. If you’re considering this step in your life, here are the best 7 reasons that’ll convince you to start this journey right away!
1. Boost your career prospects through international education
Earning a degree from a world-class university will definitely enhance your career opportunities and give you a competitive edge in the global marketplace. Your first step should be choosing the right program that fits your interests at the right place for you. We can help you in this!
Your IDP counsellor will assist you to choose from over 700 universities, colleges and schools in Australia, the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and New Zealand. You’ll get the full picture about the right studying opportunities and post-study work options, helping you make an informed decision and prepare for the future you want.
2. Grow as a person and develop valuable skills
Living in a new place can be tough sometimes, especially at the beginning. It tests your ability to adapt to new situations, which means that you’ll learn how to be more independent, self-confident and mature. You’ll gain invaluable life skills that will last a lifetime.
Don’t worry about overcoming the “first shock” of being a new international student in a new country, because we will be there for you! Your IDP counsellor will guide you to adapt to the new culture, deal with homesickness and learn a lot about your student life in the new country even before you leave.
3. Study and learn in a different way
When you study abroad, you will experience a new way of teaching. This can be difficult at the beginning, but it will open your mind to new ways of learning and will enable you to develop professional skills valued by employers worldwide. Problem solving, analytical skills, teamwork, leadership and time management skills to name but a few.
4. Experience new cultures
Studying abroad is your opportunity to actually live and immerse yourself in a new culture. You’ll see things you’ve never seen before, visit new places, experience new traditions, new lifestyle, new types of foods, and all other aspects of the new society from the inside.
5. Sharpen your English language skills
You’ll enhance your English language skills when studying abroad, because you’ll learn the language by living it, not just by reading it in the textbooks.
6. Go see the world!
This is your chance to explore new places, do so many things you’ve never done before! You can make your study break a time for exciting adventures; go sightseeing, visit famous landmarks, museums, the beautiful countryside or a neighboring country. Be ready to become a savvy traveler; there’re so many wonderful new places and activities waiting for you!
7. Make new lifelong friends & build your network
This is one of the biggest benefits of studying overseas. Joining one of your college’s clubs can be a good start to meet new friends from different nationalities, who share the same interests with you. Your IDP counsellor can also help you connect with other students and alumni from your country who are living or studying in the same place. In addition to their support and the rewarding personal relationships, your new friends will be the core of your professional network
