Studying abroad has a much deeper purpose than exploring a new country. It allows us to understand and appreciate the cultural diversity we encounter both overseas and back at home. It helps us comprehend the nature of world events, and prepares us to act as informed global citizens. It provides us with perspective, tolerance, and compassion, all while enhancing our learning and strengthening our academic abilities. It is the ultimate real-world experience.
