How has your study abroad experience benefited you in your professional/personal life?

Personally, study abroad deepened my love for traveling and self-confidence to be independent and explore the world around me.

What advice would you give to someone who is debating studying abroad?

Talk to someone who has studied in the country you are considering who can provide you with an objective opinion. Gather as much information as possible to be able to make an informed decisoin on where you choose to go and how long you choose to study abroad. Consider how studying abroad may affect your mental and physical well-being and make a plan ahead of time on how you may cope with the transition.
