There are many reasons to study abroad. You can get an education while exploring a new country and discovering new things about yourself. You can also learn:

  • how to live in another culture
  • a new language or improve your existing skills
  • about the existence of educational or professional opportunities
  • how to embrace change and new situations
  • independence
  • to make connections for networking

70% of students who studied abroad agree that their experience influenced their career choice.

Educators can also benefit from study abroad experiences. See International resources for post-secondary educators for more information.
