So what is the added value of studying abroad???
Any guesses?

The ability to speak a second language is a real CV boost. Plus, undergraduates who study abroad are likely to return with an appreciation of diverse societies and political systems, and an ability to stand on their own two feet. Combined with a good academic record from a reputable university, these personal qualities will make graduates highly attractive to employers.
Living and learning in a foreign country can give you experiences you'll be looking back on for years to come. It's a daunting endeavor-going to another country for an extended period of time-but with some planning, some common sense, and an open mind, you can have the time of your life.
Living abroad is worth the effort and brings untold and indefinable rewards. As you struggle to readjust to your home environment, remind yourself that the rewards make it all worthwhile.
Many university students who are searching for a genuine international component to their studies often consider studying abroad in another country rather than simply taking an International Management course at their home university.  
Positive aspects of studying abroad:
  • You will have a wider outlook, appreciation and understanding of the world.
  • You will have knowledge of and sensitivity to another culture and people from another country that may increase your sensitivity and awareness of the differences between Americans and many other people around the world.
  • You will have acquired another language that will increase your appreciation of the literature, culture and people who speak that language. This may also provide you with skills that enhance your career prospects and make you a more attractive candidate to potential employers.
  • You will be more independent, flexible and able to cope with new or difficult experiences.
  • You may have a new set of friends with whom you will stay in touch.
  • You will see your own culture more objectively than you did before.

Maybe the most important aspect of studying abroad happens before you leave home: finding the right program. Spending a semester or more abroad can literally be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so you want to make sure the program you pick puts you where you want to be, and that’s where Confluence Educational Services Pvt.
