FGC Study Abroad

Why Study Abroad?

Succeed in school. Develop professional skills. Grow as a person. 你应该出国留学的原因有很多, 它们都可以分为三个重要的类别:学术, professional, and personal.

Academic Reasons

According to research, study abroad alumni have higher GPAs and higher graduation rates than their peers who do not study abroad. 这些趋势在性别、社会经济和种族人口统计中都是正确的.In short, students who study abroad achieve academically at higher rates than those who do not. Part of this success might be attributed to the cognitive growth students experience when they travel internationally.

Professional Reasons

除了在大学里取得更高的成功率, study abroad alumni also develop desirable transferable skills like communication, tolerance, adaptability, and problem solving. 当然,在当今的全球经济中,国际经验至关重要.

Personal Reasons

Study abroad alumni report an increase in self-confidence, maturity, and greater independence. 他们的国际经验使他们的世界观更加复杂, 以及对外国文化的欣赏. 他们报告说,他们的友谊更多样化. And, to their surprise, they often report a deeper appreciation of their own culture. 另外,出国旅行会给你带来挑战. Many participants report learning as much about themselves as they learn about the course material.

出国留学不仅仅是一件有趣的事情. It changes you in ways that enhance your academic, professional, and personal skills.
