10 Reasons to Study Abroad

Take at look at these 10 great reasons to study abroad and find out what you could gain from an international education.

1. Improve your CV

Having international study experience makes you stand out from the crowd and increases your global job prospects.  

2. Make new friends

You’ll meet people from all over the world and make friendships that may last a lifetime. Even when you finish studying, you’ll have a network of people to stay with across the globe.

3. Fast-track your English

Study English in an English-speaking country and you’ll be able to practice your language skills in real-life situations every day.

4. Learn in a different way

Studying in a new country will expose you to new ways to live – and new ways to learn. New Zealand’s practical, hands-on style of learning encourages creative thinking rather than learning by memorising.

5. Fill your news feed

Whether you’re bungy-jumping off a bridge, exploring nature or playing beach cricket with your new friends, you’ll have incredible photos and updates to share with everyone back home.

6. Get a fresh start

Studying overseas is a rare opportunity to be yourself in a place where no-one knows you. New people, new culture, a new way of living – and a new you.

7. Meet people from different cultures

You’ll gain a better understanding of different places and people by interacting with new cultures, such as New Zealand’s unique Māori culture.

8. Gain work experience

In New Zealand, where institutions have strong links with industry, internships and work placements will give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to work in your chosen career.

9. Become more confident and independent

Studying abroad always has its challenges, from making friends to finding your way around a new city. You’ll become more independent and self-reliant, and gain the confidence and self-belief that come from making an exciting new life for yourself.

10. Expand your worldview

Living in another country gives you a new way of looking at your own country and culture. You’ll come up with your own ideas and opinions, and gain a fresh perspective on where you’re from.
