Hey, first time here, figured someone here might have some experience with this. I was thinking about studying abroad some point in my college career, good idea or not?
I was thinking of England since I have a friend who lived there who said he liked it, and they speak English, also I've lived in Ireland a few years of my life so I know a bit about Weatern European functions. Good idea or bad?
Any advice, tips, comments, anything at ALL would be really appreciated!!
Always a good idea, and probbably an amazing experience regardless also nice to have on your CV. concidering you have enough money that is.
i have been studying abroad for about a year now, from Norway to New Zealand. its been an amazing experience and it feels really nice to be in a new place with little or no ties to Norway for me. mostly because of the +12 hours difference.
Not sure what the prosess is where you are from but check the requirements ASAP. i had to begin preperation 1 year in advance.
I studied in Thailand, 1 semester abroad covered 3 levels of language, or 9 credits and I forget if it was another 6 or 9 credits of sociology and other credits.
Don't go to a place that speaks your language, branch out.
conveniently i'm english and gonna be studying abroad in america next year
our universities are a bit more self directed learning oriented from what i can tell, you don't normally get homework apart from one or two essays and an exam, and you don't get that many contact hours, you're expected to do most of your studying in your own time.
i'd reccomend brighton, bournemouth, cardiff, edinburgh or manchester, don't go to london its expensive and shit
