Studying Abroad: The Pros and Cons

Traveling abroad can be an amazing experience. From the hot accents of native men to the delicious cultural food, wandering around a foreign country sight seeing and experiencing new things can be an amazing time. Every year college students from around the U.S. leave their school for a semester and take off to Europe with a group of fellow scholarly travelers. These students take classes, sight see, party and learn about the culture of whatever country their in. While studying abroad is an extremely cool experience, there are also some cons associated with it.

Going aboard through your university means you must pay for tuition and class credits abroad, on top of all the other expenses that going overseas entails. You pay a lot more per class to study abroad, and you still must pay tuition to the school. Studying abroad also means missing an entire semester of college. You only have four years (that means eight short semesters) of college, but you have the rest of your life to travel the world. Taking advantage of your college experience is something important that everyone should do, and missing an entire semester can be tough.

On the other hand, you will never be as young and reckless as you are in college. Going abroad through your college means you get to travel Europe with 20-somethings from your own school. You get to hit the bars with your group of friends and explore the sights with people who are interested in the same things you are. Taking a semester abroad in your 20s can be a life changing, educational experience of a lifetime.

So if you’re thinking about studying abroad take everything into consideration, and figure out what’s best for you. Traveling after college is always an option, but if you know that a semester away is exactly what you want, then start packing. No matter what you do, learning about a new culture will always be an enriching experience that you’ll never forget.
