Move beyond the staple stories of your American uncle and British Aunt living abroad and bringing you the obvious souvenirs. it’s time, you experience life first-hand. In a cut throat competitive world out there, you are not only expected to have a sound scholarship of subjects which you like (or the ones which the society inflicts upon you) but also expected to gain a worldview where you should be pragmatic with your thought process and opinions. Remember now that everything is wired around the globe , you are now a global citizen, so act like one.
Now, we get it that India is a diversified state with all its academic mettle to boast about and all that but the fact drills in to state that in terms of your personal growth, academic pedagogy, scholarship building, and the dynamics of multi-culturalism, studying abroad makes it easier for the acquisition of all these pursuits. Here we disclose why studying abroad makes for a lifetime Investment.
1. Personal growth-
It’s a great way to get to know yourself in an alien environment, getting along with people of different ethnicities, learning new language, mixing in a different culture. For most, you get an edge by broadening your learning curve. Since you are also learning and competing with the best minds in the world, you tend to become innovative, resilient, and overtly self-dependent, self-reliant and more industrious because of course you’ll be working to pay off that student loan, isn’t? You even go on to forge life-long friendships which in turn help you make global connections and experience the harmony of community-living.
2. Career booster
This is one of the most obvious benefits of studying abroad for it gives a great push to your resume. The HR’s tend to cherry pick employees with a more profound experience in terms of cross-cultural pedagogy dabbling with the right skill-set and expertise ;it almost seems as if jobs are being thrown at them. You get two-fold career options to continue either in your host country or home country. Take your pick!
3. The Academic Edge
For most scholars, the un-regimented non-compartmentalized combination of different subject offered by different Universities becomes the cherry on the cake. So now you can study, fashion along with psychology and textile. Moreover there are many programs entering which, you pave your future for advanced study of being a doctorate. Needless to say, the world-class amenities available give you a class exposure befitting an academic environment you’ve yearned for so long. Thus different professors and students from different countries is definitely a potpourri for success! What say
4. Gaining world-view
This is perhaps the most crucial of benefits that tags along with studying abroad…Multi-ethnicity over here plays a big role. Things no longer seem black or white and you tend to learn to cater to someone’s else’s opinion first-hand. Like whatever you might have studies about the culture of some state could actually be refuted by someone from the same state. You learn about the dynamics of being part a part with groups and protest taking and affecting people world-wide which might never affect your home country directly. Learning alternative perspective/ solutions broadens your horizons which might have been stifled by the narrowness of caste and creed. Thus you get a birds eye –view to not only your host’s culture, lifestyle and environment but also your classmates by learning sharing and letting go off with the vile social conventions which was deemed crucial but now seems absurd to you.
5. Learning curve
Since you learn, re-learn and unlearn constantly, in an alien culture, you are much more groomed than your earlier self. One should acknowledge that after such a comprehensive pedagogy, one feels humble to offer more to the society at large. You’ll be able to contribute towards your family in more ways than one or even when you start your family you’ll have a rather diverse insight to combat or tackle difficult situations or introduce concepts. Remember the learning curve keeps growing even in your personal life gradually. It’s indeed a life-time investment in your future.
