Hi my fellow students,
Please I want to get your experience for those who had studied abroad, are currently studying abroad or any future plans to study abroad, is it that necessary for me to study abroad that if I’ll complete my entire education here I might miss somethings?
I’m so comfortable here but some of my friends told me if I’ll never study abroad I would have lost a lot of my time and I would be ignorance in many things continuing in this world.
So please I want to have your experience and opinions if I have to work things out to make sure I leave here to go for such a thang
Thank you, I’m waiting to hear from you members

Studying abroad lets you learn about other cultures, make new friends, and develop tangible career benefits.
I think it is much better than if you’ll just study in your own country that you’ve already have experience on it @jane it is true that you’ll loose something by just studying in your own country and I’m saying this from very personal experience

I think International experience benefits those seeking careers in almost any field. In fact, employers recognize skills that are acquired overseas. Study abroad identifies you as informed, confident, self-sufficient, and able to learn quickly and adapt to changing conditions.
Cite your studies abroad on your resume. In job interviews, you can discuss how your overseas experience made you more independent, responsible, organized, and innovative.
I think it is important to have this experience @jane

your success depends upon your efforts,so is not just a matter of studying abroad,it is about scoring good pass mark, and other information and experience can fall upon your good certificate, so have an attitude of scoring better certificate in studies either internally or abroad. Am speaking this bcoz i have heard alot of guys studying abroad but they come back with poor GPA, which doesn’t help them, then keep on watching that b4 making your final decision

Other benefits can apply to all types of studying abroad, whatever the subject. Living in any new country, whether working or studying, is likely to broaden the mind. Experiencing new cultures, interacting with those with a background different from one’s own, seeing a different way of life, and experiencing the way other peoples do things is generally a positive, enhancing experience. Exploring cultures and civilisations outside of one’s own, which may happen when studying abroad, is intellectually and spiritually enriching. It also encourages and nurtures independence, as the student studying abroad, out of his or her familiar territory, is placed when into an unfamiliar environment, possibly having to discover or work out new ways to get around and do things. In this respect, studying abroad can be confidence-building, equipping the student with the resourcefulness needed to be self-sufficient in a foreign country.
Another benefit to 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 abroad for all the reasons above. Living, working and / or studying abroad shows independence, initiative, resilience, and that most prized of characteristics in the workplace, adaptability. Chances are the potential employer, when seeing that the candidate has undertaken a period of studying abroad, will see the applicant as somebody who is not afraid to undertake a challenge – somebody with a sense of adventure, and somebody who is not afraid to step out of their comfort zone in order to broaden their horizons
So it’s my hope that through all this studying abroad still very important in todays market job competition and even in business grounds, personally I want to start arrange all necessary requirements to leave for study abroad in these two years to come

Study in the language of the country wherever possible, even though it makes for a tough first few weeks. (That’s assuming the native language of the country isn’t English!) You’ll smile when your potential employer realizes you really can conduct an interview in fluent Spanish.
Live with a family, rather than with fellow Americans. You’ll start to understand the nuances of culture and how things work: great for a question on cross-cultural communications.
Select courses that take advantage of your study abroad location, such as art history in Florence, or a study of lemurs in their natural habitat of Madagascar.
Seize the opportunity to do an internship, volunteer assignment or work in the place you’re studying abroad. You’ll get a completely different view of the country if you work with the local community. It may also make you want to come back after college!
Experience things you’ve never done before, like joining a family for a religious celebration, or bargaining for a carpet in a souk in Morocco. Not every experience is a good one, but a certain level of discomfort or failure can make you more resilient.
Explore, explore, explore. Make your own arrangements. Take trains and buses. Get off the beaten path. Find villages that are not on any tourist map. Talk to the local people in their own language—however bad your pronunciation.

Ila mi nafikiri ingawa sio lazima lakini ukisoma abroad itakusaida sana especially watanzania tuko nyuma sana kifikra hata namna tunaendesha maisha ni tofauti sana na dunia inavyokwenda, isitoshe tumezubaa sana, labda tujaribu kutokatoka pengine tukabadilishana tukawa nasi tuna ari zaidi ya maendeleo
