Studying abroad can open up so many doors for you to experience things you'll never be able to learn in a classroom back home. You'll learn about new cultures, customs, socio-political systems, languages, economies, etc, and will likely make some diverse friends in the process. Anytime you get the opportunity to learn from people who are different from you, you are improving your knowledge base, your understanding and empathy towards others and you perspectives on the world. This will help you in any future career you go into, as well as in all types of relationships in your life. Chances are you'll meet lifelong friends and will have a lot of fun as well!
