Nowadays more and more student are eager to study abroad, because they feel that studying abroad is better than studying local universities of our country. However, the students have their own where to study. They have own reason to stud locally or abroad. Both of universities, abroad or local have their own uniqueness, as well as advantages and disadvantages. For instance, there are many local universities in Yakutsk that have a good quality and students have a variety of choice.
Also studying in local universities can save the cost compared to studying in universities abroad, students have to pay not only for our study but also for our living cost. And students who study abroad are exposed to culture shock and they will have communication barrier. In addition, you will miss your friends and family, feel homesick, at times lost or alienated. Of course, getting education in foreign county has a lot of benefits. Living in any new country is likely to broaden the mind.
Experiencing new cultures, interacting with those with a background different from your own, seeing a different way of life, and experiencing the way other peoples do things is generally a positive, enhancing experience. It also encourages independence. In this respect, studying abroad can be confidence-building, equipping the student with the resourcefulness needed to be self-sufficient in a foreign country. More over, it is the best way to learn foreign language.
Another benefit of studying abroad is that it tends to look good on the CV. Although this is not exclusively true, employers tend to look favourably upon periods of studying in foreign country. I had experience of studying abroad last summer. I have chosen to go to Malta for a variety of different reasons. Primarily, I would like to improve my English language skills. And this program would allow me so many opportunities to reach it as I would be completely immersed into the Malta culture.
This immersion would also be very fascinating as I would acquire greater knowledge and understanding of a foreign culture. And of course it is necessary to say, that European educational system is completely differ from our one. In conclusion, while studying abroad offers great opportunities for a better future, it also has challenges that we must try our best to overcome what happened to make our dream become true.
