In the words of Michelle Obama ‘the benefits of studying abroad are almost endless’ How true and how profound that one statement is. Pursuing an overseas education will not only help you to learn new and possibly advanced topics in the subject of your choice, but will also help you broaden your life view, through exposure to a different culture and enhance your adaptability to new situations. Most students who go to study abroad, find that their co-students in the university they are studying in, come from all parts of the world. This gives an opportunity to build a network of friends from all across the globe. An opportunity rarely offered to those who elect to stay at home.
Countless are the example of famous and highly successful Indians in various fields, whose decision to pursue foreign studies has acted as a major catalyst in their success. Prominent names that come to mind are Satya Nadella –CEO of Microsoft; Sundar Picchai- CEO of Google; Rohinton Mistry- Award winning author; Amartya Sen – Nobel laureate; Mindy Kaling – Actor and popular author; Nithin Nohria – Dean of Harvard Business School; and many more. The life stories of these individuals clearly show that an overseas education can give you, not just a drive for success, but also a resilience that will stand you in good stead throughout your life. Many a student, wishes to go abroad for their studies, but is daunted by the process involved.
