Whether your student studies chemistry or art, is a high school, community college or university student, a study abroad or international exchange program will benefit them. Study abroad will allow them to take classes in foreign countries, introduce them to other cultures, and encourage them to grow into their independence. Students who had returned from studying abroad report the following benefits:

  • Self-confidence
  • Intellectual maturity
  • Appreciation for their own culture and others' 
  • Desire to pursue new and challenging educational and professional experiences

Your child will gain skills they can't get at their home campus, due to the simple fact that they will be challenged daily in a new environment. Some of these benefits include: 

  • An improved ability to communicate across different cultures
  • The skills to speak in another language, or communicate effectively despite language differences
  • Gain an increased sense of independence and responsibility
  • Distinguish themselves from others because less than 2% of U.S. college students go abroad
  • Being exposed to new perspectives and problem solving methods around the world
  • Discovering new cultures while earning college credits

Most families have many reservations about sending their child away to college, let alone overseas! However, there are so many positive benefits from studying abroad that will help your child personally, academically and professionally.
