Study abroad and broaden your horizon
More than ever it’s possible for a university student from any country to study abroad. Studying abroad is a major personal experience and a real asset on a CV. Some courses require an academic expatriation or an international internship to validate the degree. You can also choose to immerse yourself abroad independently of your studies and take part in an international internship or just enjoy the cultural enrichment that the country has to offer.
FOR WHOM IS STUDYING ABROAD?
No matter what type of study programmes, cultural or economical background you are from, there surely are schools all over the world that will be able to offer you an international experience. At INSEEC we believe that any academic with ambition will be able to fulfill his/hers dream to enjoy a quality education while enriching their life with such a journey, both on a personal and intellectual level. Moreover you can obtain a scholarship for different student mobility programs.
WHAT DO YOU GAIN WHEN YOU STUDY ABROAD?
First of all the experience alone is unique and will allow you to quickly become fluent in the language of your choice, acquire new skills and build a solild cultural knowledge about the country that adopts you. Nothing is more exciting than packing your suitcase and heading out into the world. Abroad, a whole new world opens up for you. For instance, you learn a lot about the culture of the country and how people perceive each other and the world. You will find out that many things are different than in our country. By experiencing this from up close, you gain more understanding and respect for cultures and people. It is also the best way to learn another language. The option of choosing to pass some time abroad does not only bring back beautiful memories, it allows you to experience and learn new things that you will take back with you in your daily life.
It’s not only about acquiring skills but also about sharing. Cities and educational institutes that welcome scholars are a stimulating environment for any adventurous soul whether if you’re an undergraduate or part of the postgraduates team. When you spend a long time abroad, you get to know many new people from other countries. You often make friends for life. That is not only great fun, but also very good for your international skills. Your foreign classmates, friends and housemates will undoubtedly have different habits from you. A piece of bread with chocolate on it for breakfast might be quite normal for a European, but any flatmate from India may think differently. Funny moments like this are often also very instructive and represent a teachable moment.
The exchange of knowledge and sheer life-stories will produce friendships and professional contacts. Some of them could be lifelong relationships ! Studying abroad has its challenges and its rewards. We’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure that your investment pays off. At the end of your stay, you will continue to enrich your knowledge by staying connected to online learning tools and student communities.
WHAT’S IMPORTANT WHEN PLANNING TO STUDY ABROAD?
Every year, thousands of researchers and students go abroad for their studies or research work. Studying abroad can be very valuable as we’ve seen before but there are some aspects that require some planning. For example:
- Do you need a visa?
- How to handle your tuition fee?
- Where and when to apply?
- Is a language test required?
- Does my diploma need translation?
- What service do I contact for housing issues?
- How to sustain financial health?
- What about mobility?
