Top 10 Reasons to Study Abroad

Something I wished I could have done!!!
Study abroad, for those who may not know, is when you go to another county and attend school there like the locals. You can absorb the local culture and also gain an experience that not everyone can experience. According to social media site, here are the top 10 reasons to study abroad

1.) Makes your resume more attractive
-Everyone wants a resume that is going to turn heads. Studying abroad shows that you are driven, independent, definitely one that can be trusted and able to jump right into new situations. An employer would be crazy not to want to hire you!

2.)Scholarships go long!
-For students looking for international education, scholarships help out! And grants, scholarships and loans often take off the burden of paying for that awesome experience

3.)Personal growth
-While it's daunting at the thought of picking up your entire life and going to a foreign land to learn, there is some excitement in it. You can pick up a new language, absorb the local culture, even make a friend or two. But the biggest reward is confidence in yourself and feeling more independent

4.)Making new friends
-This is the biggest and best reward. If you take interest in local cultures, you're bound to make friends in no time!

5.)Opportunity to travel
-Everyone loves travelling. Europe tends to be a popular area for study abroad experiences. You can learn about so many cultures within a certain area

6.)Getting in to another culture
-Understanding the culture of the country you study abroad in makes the experience so much more rewarding. It makes you more employable and you can learn the language

7.)Your perspective grows
-Like the song "A Whole New World" from the Disney movie Aladdin, this perfectly captures what studying abroad can do. It can open your eyes to the many vast and interesting cultures of our fine world

8.)The food
-Need we say more?

9.)Managing finances
-This one can be hard sometimes. Taking on the responsibility of managing your finances can be a daunting task, but it's a learning experience!

10.)The time is now for action!
-Sometimes life can get in the way of something like this. Whether it be family, mortgages, or a job, this may not be high on your priority list. It's good to take the bull by the horns and run with it!
