Studying abroad can open up new opportunities and experiences that you might not get in the UK. The appeal is likely to be a combination of gaining a high-quality education and experiencing a new culture. And this often leads to learning a second language which can be hugely beneficial. Also, some students find having an international study on their CV shows a wider mindset and skill set.
How does studying abroad work?
The first thing to decide is where in the world you want to study. Perhaps there is somewhere specific to your chosen course that would make it an obvious choice. If there isn’t then take time to decide how far you want to travel and what you want to experience. There is also the option to search universities to get a better understanding of what they offer at the QS World University Rankings. This will help with decision-making and give you a better idea of what processes you will have to undertake.
Which country is best for study?
There are lots of different reviews of where to study and which one is the best. Ultimately, it comes down to where you can see yourself relocating to and what culture you want to immerse yourself in. As it stands Australia and France are still the two most popular destinations for UK students studying abroad. Here’s a list of some of the top places to study….
- United States
- The Netherlands
- New Zealand
