Studying abroad is an amazing experience It not only will help you on an academic level but also offers a lot of opportunities for self development and exploration. It motivates you to lift your boundaries and explore your university abroad, the city & the country, make acquaintances, get to know different cultures and meet people from different corners of the globe. It will, without a doubt, be a wonderful experience and one cherished for life.
What you can get out of a semester away from your home university:
- You will get to know the culture of your host country - there might be some nuances from what you're used to and that's what makes it special.
- You will be able to either learn a new language or further improve your skills in a language you already know. Going abroad - in a country where the language actually is spoken - is a great opportunity to speak to locals and get to know their dialect, phrases & expressions or just little things you didn't know yet.
- You will meet and get to know amazing people. It's not only locals you will get in contact with but also other exchange students you meet during your studies. It's these interactions that make a semester abroad truly special. You'll have a wonderful time and maybe even develop friendships that will last a lifetime.
- So much more... just try it out
Going abroad definitely is a move in the right direction and will provide you with a different perspective towards 'normal' things once you are back in your home country.
