Studying abroad allows students to have an international experience in their education that would make them have a wider array of understanding of social, political, economic, environmental, and other issues. Studying abroad helped them in different ways.
First benefit of studying in the U.S. is the first hand exposure to the American English language. As we all know, English is a globally acceptable language. A student may be able to learn English from his home country as a second language but first-hand experience with the language will really hone the student in English communications. By being fluent in the English language, one will have an edge in establishing a global career.
Studying abroad, especially in the U.S., as they say it, is an investment in one’s future. Yes, you will have to shell out money to finance your studies but the return to this type of investment can be double or even triple. Also, there are colleges or universities offering affordable fees to international students and even scholarships.
International studies may give a student an edge that not everyone has. It provides people another lens on how to view the world. It makes one more open minded through learning from a different environment and culture. Also, these new learnings and experiences can be brought home by the students to their home country and apply them in their lives there.
