Become a Global-Minded Expert
Asia can easily be described as the most vivacious of all continents. Its many cultures and their fascinating fusion makes for an open-ended learning experience. Very often, students who studied abroad in Asia for just one semester wish they could have stayed longer.
One option is to study for two semesters. This allows you to properly settle into the local rhythm, get to know the culture and explore your surroundings more in depth. Your whole study abroad experience becomes more vivid and you’re able to take in more of your environment. This, in turn, enables you to perceive and seize more opportunities than during a shorter stay.
Another option is to “go the whole hog” and opt for a full degree abroad. This is, in fact, the perfect way to kickstart an international career, as you can fully immerse yourself in a foreign culture for several years. This will expand your worldview like no other experience and lead to numerous personal and professional benefits, such as the ability to understand and interact with people from another culture, greater mental flexibility and enhanced problem-solving skills.
The Amazing Career Benefits of Studying Abroad
Many students report that they gained more career opportunities after studying abroad in Asia. One student who studied abroad in China for a semester reported that after she started mentioning her study abroad semester in her CV, she suddenly got offered all the three jobs she applied for.
Sometimes studying abroad helps you define your own career path. Take the example of Marvin, who after his study abroad semester in Bali decided to stay and become an entrepreneur there. Or Roosa, whose gap year in Asia influenced her choice of major and later opened up many employment opportunities. For Bianca, studying abroad helped her to score her dream job.
Completing an entire degree at abroad raises the bar to another level. You will have countless more options and opportunities for either further studies or employment at home or abroad.
When you complete a degree abroad, you will end up graduating with not only all the skills and knowledge that come with your degree, but also with an in-depth knowledge of the local culture and a heightened intercultural awareness. You will become a global-minded expert with an increased ability for taking new perspectives and solving problems creatively. Such skills are in high demand in today’s complex, interconnected world.
The options an international degree provides you with are priceless in the changing job markets and make you adaptable to the challenges of the 21st century career paths.
