Why Study Abroad?

Why Study Abroad? Education is more often than not the foundation for any trip abroad. Studying in a foreign country offers endless opportunities to learn new skills that will help you adapt to multiple cultures and analyse situations on a global scale.

Here are the major outcomes of that study.

Education is more often than not the foundation for any trip abroad. Studying in a foreign country offers endless opportunities to learn new skills that will help you adapt to multiple cultures and analyse situations on a global scale. Studying abroad is a key step in becoming a ¨Global Citizen,¨ an important trait in a very interconnected world.
For students, learning abroad offers an opportunity not only to explore new countries and cultures, but also to improve on their communication, problem-solving, independence and self-management skills. All of which are attractive attributes to future employers.

Due to a spike in Australian students spending time overseas as part of their higher education programme, 11 Australian universities participated in a study focusing on the early career benefits of learning abroad programmes. Their findings suggest that in addition to the promotion of employability skills, the development of citizenship skills, and an increase in greater career direction, studying abroad also significantly promotes the accumulation of international skills and knowledge.

Thus, allowing those who participate in learning abroad programs to better shape their ¨International career capital¨ and increase their appeal to work in international roles. They suggest that learning abroad is more than just an option for a credit transfer to students, but rather an opportunity to enhance their career-relevant skills and open more doors to future opportunities!
