‘There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.’- Robert Louis Stevenson
By studying abroad you broaden your horizon. You live in another country with a different history and culture than your own, you study at a foreign University and follow lectures with foreign students. You will be taken out of your known world, you will need to take initiative and communicate with different types of people. It will help you to get in touch with new customs, habits and ideas. You learn to see thatreality can be seen from different angles, leading to a new and broader perspective.
