First thing, congratulations! You have come this far – having secured a spot to study overseas, received your student visa and offer of accommodation, and booked your flight.
Studying abroad could be one of the best moments of your life. You get to experience what life elsewhere is like, meet new people, try new things and experiences that you would otherwise not do back home – all while free from career obligations. At least that’s the case for me.
If you’re studying in university overseas, it may even open doors to more opportunities. Some countries (especially Canada) reward foreign students with work permits after their graduation.
Whether you’re moving abroad for university, language immersion or other educational purposes, you would find essential tips and stories on studying overseas here.
