Many students choose to attend schools or universities outside their home countries. Why do some students study abroad?Why do some students choose to study abroad? I think that the main reasons are an attempt to obtain better education, new experience and an intention to be independent. Lets look closer on those reasons.
First, some students want to take the best education they can afford. If a person choose a spanish literature as his area of research, then the best choice of univercity is somewhere in Spain. And even if you choose math maybe there are no strong math schools in your homecountry. People who think about their future try to get the best opportunities. That leads them to other countries.
Second, studying outside homecountry always brings new experience. New firends, other habbits, new language and even different food could give you something. For example, russian student comes to study in Japan. He would be overwhelmed by strict rules in japanese society but he would also learn a lot about responsibility, respect to the elders and politeness.
Final reason is that some youngsters want to be independent from almost everything. They want to start their lifes from the blank list without family, friends and even native language. It’s a challenge that could teach more than a univercity. It’s a hidden but very important reason as i think.
