Simplified Look at Whether or not to Study Abroad

Thinking of Studying Abroad

Some of these negative aspects can be resolved – such as the transferring of credits. If you talk with your academic advisor about what classes you are planning on taking, the credits could be a smooth process.

Also, if you plan a year ahead, you can start saving up money. You could sacrifice going out with friends each night of the week and instead, save the dinner money for “dinner in Spain!” Some programs and colleges offer scholarships to help lower the costs of studying abroad as well.

Even if you take these negatives as negatives, this chart shows that there are way more benefits to studying abroad than there are to not-study abroad!

So what are YOU waiting for?
