1: You’ll meet new friends from across the globe
Meeting new people is always fun. I believe you can learn a lot from people with different cultures than your own. Both learn a lot about other cultures, but also (and maybe especially) about yourself. It is super fun and it gives you even more reason to travel afterwards, because you should visit all your new friends, of course!
(I’m already missing all of my new friends :'( )
2: You get to travel during your study abroad
If you love to travel, an exchange is a perfect opportunity to explore a new country or even a new part of the world. No matter where you go, you’ll get to know your city and the area around it very well. You will probably also learn a lot about the culture and maybe learn the language. Even though you have to go to school and do homework, it still feels different from being home and you are doing so many exciting things on you sparetime. You can read about some of the places I travelled here.
3: You get international experience
International experience is really good for you resumé, as it shows that you are independent and are able to adapt to and live in a foreign culture. Besides, it shows that you are not afraid to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. Pretty cool, I’d say!
4: You become a stronger version of you
Being away from home can be hard and you are going to face a lot of different challenges. Both big and small. You will learn how to overcome these challenge and learn how much you can actually do on your own. I believe I have grown a lot as a person, because of my exchange stay.
