Study abroad is one of the most enriching and rewarding experiences that students can have during their college careers. Those who have studied abroad almost always describe it as their most exciting adventure so far. Usually they find that it changes their lives in positive ways that they couldn’t possibly have imagined before the experience. Once they have returned, they are eager to share their stories and experiences with others so that they in turn, can have a life-changing experience as well.
The desire to learn more about the world and about the specific country or countries chosen is on the agenda of everyone who goes abroad. What students often don’t realize is how much they can learn about themselves. They very often discover new interests, passions, talents and sides of themselves that they didn’t even know existed. Study abroad is as much a journey into the self as into the world.
