Immerse yourself in another culture and enjoy the many benefits that come from being a study-abroad student. Living in and learning from a different country fosters both your independence and your personal development. Through this experience, and the knowledge you’ll gain living like a local, you’ll expand your horizons and learn more about the world, thus changing the way you think about it. You’ll also learn to work with diverse people—a skill that is valuable wherever you are. It goes without saying that you’ll be able to put your study-abroad experience to use in the future, either for a career—60 percent of employers value an international study experience—or the next step in your education. And the list goes on.
So what are you waiting for? The world awaits.
