By living and studying in a foreign country, you'll gain a new understanding of your personal heritage, culture and values. Additionally, you will become more independent, self-reliant, and self-confident as you learn to navigate and live comfortably in a different culture. The full immersion experience of living in a different country affords you the opportunity to learn or master that country's language at social, academic, and professional levels. Interacting with the native population and fellow international students allows you to gain greater respect for other cultures.
Your exposure to a new culture will allow you to gain a broad and sophisticated worldview and diversify your thoughts and values. As a result, it'll be easier for you to form partnerships and work effectively to tackle global or multinational challenges. You will stand out from other job candidates with the skills that can only be gained through international experience, such as strong cross-cultural communications and familiarity with international standards, laws, and regulations. Additionally, if you study in a country with an emerging economy, you will be able to respond quickly to an evolving market or industry.
