Studying in a country other than your own has always been perceived to be a relatively easy method to create grounds for a career that will have an international flavour. Once you ‘study abroad’, as it is commonly known, you could potentially work overseas thus immersing yourself in a truly international world and become a global citizen.
However, one of the biggest advantages of studying abroad, in my experience, is that it forces you out of that infamous “comfort zone”. To live in a culture that has different cultural references, jokes, food, etc., encourages you to look at the world differently. Looking at the world through a different lens altogether can transform your personal worldview and make you ready for an international workplace. For instance, a typical classroom in an international university will have students from all over the world so when you do group assignments you are exposed to different perspectives and diverse ways of addressing a problem.
