How Education Abroad Can Improve Your Career Prospects by Ebin Mathew

Dr. Doug’s Comments

  • While I have never studied abroad, I have traveled to many European countries and I agree with Ebin that spending time in other cultures is beneficial in many ways. My daughter spent a summer in Venice, and I know many former students and friends who have had this experience. My biggest concern for those considering foreign study is that they find a program that is well synched with their major concentration. It is vital that all of the course work you take during your travels counts toward your desired degree back home. If you are in a country where English is not the dominant language, make sure you put yourself in situations where you have to use the local language. It’s tempting to hang with your English speaking friends, but this won’t help you become fluent in another language.
  • Finances are also an issue. Unless you come from a family of means, you should try to get some financial assistance via scholarships. The biggest additional cost will probably be transportation, so look for programs where the institution takes care of that so you can get the best deal.
