Whilst I love the UK and all it has to offer, sometimes I do wish I can move abroad! For many people when doing a degree, they can study abroad. It offers so many opportunities especially to those who could not have afforded to travel prior to taking a degree. In this article I’ll go through a few countries that people can study in and see whether you would move abroad as well!
The country on everyone’s mind when people first hear about studying abroad is France! It offers a wonderful night life and amazing culture (with some amazing food too!). Though most of the teaching is usually in French, there’s education often available in English! Or if you want to have a challenge in the future and be able to speak to the locals in Paris, why not attend a course to learn French!
A bit further away from home is the United States! America is particularly renowned for the sports scholarships it can give, especially in the athletics scene. With great sporting facilities and universities, I recommend that if you are doing a sport, see if there’s a scholarship available for your sport! An American scholarship will develop you as an athlete and your future career!
The third country on our list is Germany! With internationally rated universities and festivals all year round, how could you not take an opportunity to study in Germany! With many different festivals to attend, you’ll never be bored! With one of the most renowned events being the Christmas markets! The two most visited cities for its Christmas markets are Dortmund which has around three and a half million visitors every year: Secondly you could visit Cologne’s Christmas markets which has around four million visitors every year!
WHY STUDY ABROAD?
Lastly whilst this article has only gone through three countries, the more important question is why! One of the many reasons’ students wish to study abroad is to become independent. By studying abroad, it allows you to learn about not only your subject but how to do things for yourself. Skills that will be used for the rest of your life! Another reason would be to experience different cultures and how people experience life different to your own life! As well as meeting new people who have vastly different backgrounds.
WHAT CAREER OPPORTUNITIES CAN IT PROVIDE YOU AFTER YOUR DEGREE?
You may stumble across your dream job? When abroad, you can build up a network of contacts, and by living and working abroad, you may find opportunities you may have never had accessed before. Before you choose where to study, take a look at what subject you will study first, as it will give you the best idea of where to possibly go. The most common example is, if you were to take Fashion, countries like France and Italy would give you the best education and career opportunities. As well as being able to attend high- end fashion runway shows! I hope this article can help some students out there and reminder… keep in mind both the education a country can provide but also what you can do in your chosen city. Whilst education is clearly important, you’ll be living in the country for a while so make sure you know you’ll love the country!
