We’ve said a bunch of times, Study Abroad is one of the best experience you can do in your life. I know, it’s not an easy choice to take for you and your parents. Moreover, there are many things to take into consideration, and the fear of leaving your comfort zone might be quite heavy.

Here in this blog post, I’ll give you 10 reasons why you should decide to Study Abroad.

Okay, let’s start!

1. Discover the world

I decided to start with this reason because I personally think that study abroad gives you a huge opportunity to discover the world. Our planet is full of opportunities, amazing spots as well as people. By studying abroad, you’ll have the chance to travel and fill up your soul with fascinating worldwide experiences whatever destination you choose.

Keep in mind: world is huge! You’ll find out something new that will help you in several aspects. Above all, you know how is it cool to tell your family ad friends all experiences you’ve done during your period abroad? I strongly think this represents such a great feeling and sensation.

travel abroad

2. Learn & improve your language skills

When you decide to go studying abroad, you also need to consider that it represents a way to learn and improve your language skills. Over the previous blog posts I’ve written, I’ve always underlined the fact an English knowledge is always required. So, if you are willing to study abroad, make sure to have an acceptable level of English. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be an English expert! However, it’s better to have skills that enable you to establish a basic connection with people around you.

Now the good thing comes! I’ve personally experienced that it’s quite easy to improve your language skills. Why? Because starting for day one you’ll start speaking a language different than your native one. And because of this, I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to improve your skills after 3 or 4 months living abroad.

As you are an expert in the English language, why don’t you start learning a new language? This is a huge opportunity you won’t probably have in your country anymore. I give you an example.

If you’re studying abroad in Spain, try to start learning Spanish by meeting new locals. However, you can also decide to take some Spanish classes in order to have a language base. Mixing theoretical and practical ways, you will easily learn a new Idioma super useful for your personal and professional career. 

3. Embrace diversity

The third reason I’ve decided to mention is based on the chance to embrace diversity. In my opinion, this is a golden reason that should push you to study abroad.

In fact, when you are in another country you’ll be surrounded by people from worldwide countries. And that’s amazing! By doing this, you’ll hug the diversity and will learn thousands of new cultures. This will help you to evaluate past, present as well as future situations and facts.

Finally, it doesn’t’ matter where you go; you have the opportunity to embrace diversity in every single place.

4. Meet new people

When you go studying abroad, it’s crazy the number of new people you’ll meet. Moreover, it’s quite easy to meet and make new friends. Why? Because most of them are in the same situation as you. For this reason, after a couple of days of adjustment, you’ll build new relationships. I’ve personally experienced there is no day where you cannot find new people. So, don’t worry; you won’t be alone!

5. Build network connections

Super related to the reason above, meet new people means building up network connections. In fact, when you meet someone, you basically create a strong personal and professional network. And network connections enable you to be constantly in contact with people from all around the world, sharing then ideas, memories and opinions. And who knows! Those network connections might be “useful” for you in the future. I explain better myself by giving you an example.

You’re 40 years old and about to start a 3 weeks trip to South America. When you were studying abroad you met friends from that area. This gives you the opportunity to call them and plan a throwback reunion. You’ll meet friends again as well as getting useful tips for your trip. Such a great thing no?

6. Support your professional career

When you go studying abroad, it means study a Master/Bachelor or eventually do an Erasmus. For this reason, you’ll be able to firstly improve your know-how and secondly your CV. Nowadays, companies are way more willing to consider people with experience abroad. Above all, wherever you decide to work, the experience abroad will give you a huge gap in terms of finding a job, in comparison with people who decided not to do it.

7. Find the study program that fits your need the best

In many cases, study abroad means also find the study program you weren’t able to find in your country. Here you have my witness: one of the reasons that pushed me to study abroad was actually the fact I found the right master for me out of my country.

If you have difficulties in finding a bachelor or master in your own land, don’t be afraid to check out something abroad. The Study Abroad Portal team is always involved in providing students with innovative study programs abroad. What are you waiting for?

Check out now our portal, watch Online Open Days for free, and apply to the right university for you.

8. Open to new challenges

Study abroad gives you also the chance to open yourself to new challenges. No matter how long you will live out of your country. This experience will push you to find new challenges and to leave your comfort zone behind.

Just experiencing life abroad, you’ll figure out how it will improve your mindset in facing new horizons.

9. Discover yourself

Moreover, the student’s life abroad has nothing to compare to the one that you could have in your country. You live alone, in a new context with new people and surroundings. All this enables you to discover yourself, your soul and feelings. I honestly think you’re able to fully discover yourself only by having an experience abroad, far from home and ordinary boundaries.

10. Personal experience

Finally, I’d underline that as (and if!!) you decide to come back home, you will be so full of personal, interpersonal and professional experiences that will surely help you in your future life. You’ll instantly see benefits in relation with your friends, family, colleagues as well as with yourself.

Concluding, now that I’ve given you the 10 reasons to study abroad, I hope I’ll sell you the right motivation to consider the chance to go abroad.

So you think you are done with Uni. But beware, University is not done with you. At some point, they will invite you to a graduation ceremony. What is it? Why does it exist? What do I do? Do not fear, let us tell you all you need to know to survive your graduation ceremony.

What is a Graduation Ceremony

The graduation ceremony, or convocation, is a relatively long celebration in which the official representatives of a university hand out the diplomas to the University, Masters or Doctorate students (hopefully, after all the exams are over, and they are finishing their degrees). Although American high schools also celebrate it, convocation is strictly a University celebration that dates from the medieval era in Europe.

Now… Saying that a graduation ceremony is just a boring event will make you miss some of the detail and fun that you can have there. But also, it is quite a complex manoeuvre itself. We are therefore going to describe the steps of any graduation ceremony for you to be ready to survive the last step of Uni.

Steps of any Graduation

  • Introduction – Just like anywhere else, things start in the beginning. Someone important (or, hopefully, a funny showman) will open the event that is devoted to students, their parents, and the university.
  • Speeches – Now, several people will get everyone´s attention. From the deans and professors to an especially renowned invitee, and even the students! This is a great opportunity to tone down the evening, with some student inside jokes or even criticism.
  • Diplomas – If you though the speeches were boring, beware: now every single student will be called up to walk through the stage and pick up the diploma. As you can guess, this can take up to two hours. This part of the ceremony, though, is famous for the pranks some students decide to play. But we´ll talk about those in a minute.
  • Farewell – this is probably the most emotional moment of the whole event. Not just because it´s finally over, but because you realize you are saying goodbye to the uni, the campus, the teachers, and many of your friends. Ultimately, you might be saying goodbye to your student life, which is -for many, the best period you get in life.

Now that you understand the steps of the graduation, let us point out what you should not miss!

Gaudeamus Igitur

Gaudeamus is a song (in Latin!) traditionally sang in graduations. Although it is the “official” anthem of universities (with its medieval origin and all), it is just an old drinking song that invites you to “enjoy life because it is too short” -or if you were paying attention in lit class, carpe diem. Some graduation ceremonies play it through the speakers while others hire choirs or ask the teachers and students to sing it. In my promotion, we were well aware of the origins and meaning and decided to sing it. It was a bit ridiculous and very fun for us. And professors were quite surprised.

Speech

Do not be discouraged by speeches: for some are actually very interesting. When the university invites a professional or academic to give the honorific speech, it is not about their achievements, but about life lessons. People go crazy about YouTube videos of celebrities and geniuses on graduation speeches, well go figure… you can attend one live!

Academic Regalia

As you probably know, the dressing code of a graduation ceremony is quite awkward… since it also dates from the medieval time. It is all about uniforming all students to give a clear message of “democracy and equality”.

So be aware, this is not about being the prom queen, but about showing belonging to your university, discipline and educational level. As a side note, you should contact older students to try to buy their used graduation clothes, because you can spend a lot of money on this otherwise. This is what you need to know!

Graduation Outfit

  • Grown/toga – is a large tunic you wear over your regular suit or dress. Be aware: OVER your suit. You will also have to look for a serious blazer jacket or nice dress and pair of shoes for the ceremony. This is normally black or blue, and the university will direct you to the proper model of the gown (the sleeves are different for bachelor, masters or doctorate students).
  • Hood or cowl – Goes over the grown and might show the distinct colours of the discipline you studied. If like me, you get lucky, you just get to wear your cowl over your suit and no grown (quite convenient). This is the colour code you must follow:
graduation ceremony
  • Caps, tassels and medals – Other accessories are the caps, medieval-like hats which also vary depending on hierarchy and discipline. We all know the stereotypical image of students tossing them in the air after graduation, and that is completely true. Even the tassel, or the “rivety” thread that hangs from the cap, must have its correct placement. Also, medals or other accessories might be worn.
  • Pranks – It has become quite normal to see students prank the teachers or the entire crowd while picking up their diploma. Everything from doing a backflip to revealing a fancy dress underneath the toga. Some universities embrace these practices, but most will take serious measures against this. Far from putting yourself in danger, while you perform your stunt you are clouding the next fellow´s minute of glory. As I explained before, this ceremony is all about equality. So if you want to be brave about it, I will not take responsibility! -but I hope you have fun.

But take a moment to think of what it means for you, and how proud you should be of yourself. If you managed to survive uni, it means our guide was helpful!

In this regard, getting assignment services is an ideal option you can go for. It will help you a bit in releasing your stress about college. The expert paper writer gives you qualified work on time. They become professional after a lot of experience; they assure to provide you with quality work.

Thousands of students browse the internet every day looking for masters and bachelors to study. They might be looking for their favourite degree, thinking about Studying Abroad, or just browsing to get information about scholarships and tuition fees. They might very clearly know what they want to study or be full of doubts. That is why we are so proud to present them with our Online Open Days. But not everyone understands the concept immediately. Therefore, we are now presenting you with: “What is an Online Open Day?”

In just a few words, an Online Open Day is an informative session (a webinar) in which you can connect with personnel from your favourite university or business school and make inquiries about content, fees, procedures etc. This is very useful if you live far away from such University (as far as “across the ocean”). You will also be presented with a general description of one or more programs and other related topics. The Online Open Days we promote are free for everyone to register, since we want everybody to have a chance to Study Abroad!

Let´s look at the term up close:

  • Online means you can access it from your computer, cell phone, or tablet. It is a short video presentation with members of the Uni staff and our moderator. But Online also means you can watch it later if you do not have time now!
  • Open Day is, just like in any other situation, a day in which you are invited to take part and discover everything about a certain program or group of programs. But Open Day also means that it is free for anyone to join.

Let´s also see how an Online Open Day is different to anything else around:

An Online Open Day is not an educational fair: you do not have to walk through a crowded stadium where 50 universities are handling out brochures and leaflets. You do not need to shout to speak with the representatives, and most importantly, you do not have to travel to different locations to attend!

An Online Open Day is not a virtual fair. You do not miss information because the presentation is too broad: Virtual Fairs are often shared amongst several universities and lack the personal touch of an expert taking care of you.

An Online Open Day is not a portal. You do not lack the personal attention and care of recruiters, something that is normally missing in portals. You can easily follow the information, pause and go forward depending on your pace. And you can ask anything you need to get live feedback!

If that is true, what is there in an Online Open Day?

Experts

When you join an Online Open Day you can see and hear the testimonies of some experts. Normally, we would include a recruiter or marketer, a teacher or program director and a student or alumni. This is the best combination between registration questions, program questions and practical questions. You wouldn´t do without those staff members, but sometimes it´s the ex-student that can answer the questions better.

Online

Although we have explained “on-demand” more than enough, there are some details that need further explanation: Most webinars are “live”. This means that you can connect at a certain day and time, and not before. You definitely can re-watch the session if you missed it, but today´s generations have a very tailored taste. That is why we also do On-Demand webinars, where you can watch it whenever you want.

Moderator

In our Online Open Days you can find a moderator that introduces the session and guides it throughout. Our moderator and producer, Simon, has done more than 600 webinars, and uses this experience to get the most out of university members, while entertaining you.

Content

The webinar is here to answer any question you might have before wanting to go to study. Most typical questions are about the theoretical and practical weight of matter, the amount and type of exams, the admission requirements, the tuition fees and scholarships, student life and living costs… even public transport in the city and VISA related questions!

Applying for College With an Open and Prepared Mind

Applying for College With an Open and Prepared Mind

When it’s time to start preparing for the college application process, you may find yourself overwhelmed with your options and wondering where to start. Or maybe you’ve always known the university you want to attend and it’s your one and only plan to continue your education at that school. Either way, it’s necessary to take a step back and look at your future as a whole. It’s important to be realistic about the possibilities that are open to you, but keep in mind that with research, hard work, and the proper preparation, you can land yourself in what always has been or what will turn out to be the college of your dreams.

Start Early

Once high school begins, it’s never too early to start thinking about your plans for post-graduation. Take advantage of this time to try different clubs, activities, classes, and even jobs to find out what you’re good at and what you enjoy most. These steps will help make choosing a major and a college much easier for you. Most importantly, get a jump start on studying and preparing for your SAT’s, and take a look at what you need to do to earn grants and scholarships towards your degree.

Get Help From the Pros

It takes a lot of time and research to prepare for and apply to college. If you want to get ahead of the game and make sure you aren’t overlooking your best options, consider utilizing a College Applications Program, like from Bobby Tariq. A professional can help you present your best self and submit your best work by offering training and resources. They can help point you in the right direction by introducing you to schools that suit your profile best, even if you had never heard of or considered them before. They can also help you find financial aid in unexpected places.

Keep an Open Mind

Things change quickly during this phase of your life. As you learn more about yourself, you may find that your needs and desires are changing as you mature. You may also need to think about what is going to help you become a better person, not just a good employee. It’s never easy when life doesn’t follow your original plans, but keeping an open mind can bring you to places that are better than you had dreamed.

While you may have your eye on one college in particular, can it offer you the quality education, training, and opportunities that are unique to your individual goals? With a little time and effort, you could expand your horizons and find yourself in an unexpected place building a better future.
