International experiences – especially long-term experiences such as a semester or year abroad – provide lasting benefits that shape an individuals life both personally and professionally. Beyond the obvious reasons to study abroad such as opportunities to see the world and experience other cultures, there are true benefits to those experiences.
I have many many reasons why I think everyone should study overseas. They include:
- The abilitiy to travel the world
- To broaden your world view and perspective
- Make friends and a professional network thats international
- Experience personal growth
- Develop valuable career skills
