Why Education Abroad

Here are some reasons why students should study abroad:

  • Academic challenge; considerable variation of studio and lecture or seminar class.
  • Professional growth; an experience of places seen in history classes—the real thing for design.
  • Personal enrichment; knowledge of self; foster independence.
  • Opportunity to appreciate and learn about other cultures and people
  • Broaden perspective of the US and its role in the world.
  • Once in a lifetime experience while a student; you are accepted as a student in a manner that is not found when you're traveling as a tourist or business person.
  • Opportunity to spend an extended period of time and have an in-depth experience that is not possible in other circumstances.
