Many college students pass up the amazing opportunity to study abroad because they are worried about graduating on time. What these students don’t realize is that many of the classes they need to graduate are available overseas.
It doesn’t matter if the credits are for mathematics, physics, biology, fine arts, humanities, or a foreign language, most of these classes are offered at universities worldwide. As an added bonus, many of the classes, especially at larger universities, are taught in English!
Students also fear that their school won’t accept transfer credits from a foreign university, but it’s very simple to find out what your options are. Simply contact your school’s Registration and Records Office to see if they accept transfers from the foreign university of your choice.
Finally, if you’ve done your research and have realized that you would definitely graduate late if you studied abroad, ask yourself this: “Would it really be such a bad thing?”
Studying abroad is an amazing and enriching experience, and job prospects for college graduates aren’t exactly promising anyway. So why rush to enter a lousy job market when fantastic opportunities await you in a foreign country?
