Choosing a Destination for your higher studies depends on various Perhaps you’re reading this because you’re not completely sure whether or not you’re ready to go abroad.You may be asking, why study abroad? I didn’t make my decision until a week before the application was due (not something I would recommend by the way). I could say that if you really don’t think it’s for you then don’t go, but I don’t believe that. It’s only natural to be a bit fearful of change and facing new and challenging experiences.
Anyone who has even a remote desire to go abroad should decide to do it, in my humble opinion, anyway. If for some reason you can’t last the semester or year and you have to come home, what’s the worst that can happen? You lose one semester of school and graduate when you’re 23 instead of 22. In the scheme of life, that’s not that big a difference, and the chances of that happening are minimal.
One of my biggest fears when I made the decision to go abroad was that I would lose my good friends and be really far out of the loop when I returned home. First and foremost, your being abroad shouldn’t change anything. You can still talk via Skype and phones and, if your friends are true friends, they will be excited for you to go and do something with your life, as well as be understanding when you come home.
There is still the possibility that you will feel out of the loop when you go back home, but you’ll catch up on the latest music trends, TV shows and fashion crazes pretty quickly. Besides, the stuff you pick up while abroad is probably more valuable anyway.
