Studying Abroad

Have you ever thought about studying abroad? No, not just for a few months for your work-experience, but a whole year (or longer) as a transfer-student. Of course, you don’t make such a decision from one minute to the next. It needs to be thought over well. Going to college is a big change in your life because it usually means living on your own for the first time, but as a foreign student it is even a bigger change because you are on your own in another country. This is often the greatest concern for students to go abroad: to leave everything behind. They have trouble leaving their family and the familiar environment. They think this price is just too high.

Continuing your study at an American university is not only an challenging and exiting experience, but also a great opportunity to improve your academic skills, learn more about other cultures, and after all more about yourself. International education has many advantages and it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are many organizations, like the Netherlands America Commission for Educational Exchange (NACEE), that can help you with your finance and other necessary paperwork. And maybe your university is connected to an American university that offers scholarships for international students. The ways to get there are endless, but the decision to do it lies with you.
