As a developing country, Nigeria is far from the perfect when it comes to education.
Studying abroad serves as a way to help Students improve their home country by experiencing and observing a more developed country. Many believe studying abroad impacts only the student’s career path. However, the effect of studying abroad branches itself into a student’s personal, professional, cultural and academic life mainly in a positive way.
Here are some benefits studying abroad can offer both the country and the students:
Improve Career Opportunities – A major benefit of studying abroad is the opportunity to broaden your skills and qualifications. This also helps with employment, because statistics show that studying abroad increases the chances of a successful employment by 74%.
Experience developed Culture – Studying abroad provides the opportunity to meet and communicate with people of different nationalities. You are able to learn foreign languages and traditions.
Acquire useful skills – Studying abroad gives you the chance to acquire new skills you wouldn’t have been able to get in Nigeria; learn new and easier ways of doing things, develop new hobbies, engage in sporting activities not popular in the country, sharpen your language skills, and more.
Get access to high-quality education – Most of the world’s best universities that rank high in the World are distributed abroad in countries like the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Finland, Norway, etc. Therefore, studying abroad in any of these countries gives you access to high-quality education in a world-class learning environment that may not be accessible in Nigeria.
