Study tours teach students adaptability, cultural awareness, teamwork, and field research skills that are increasingly valuable in the globalized world. Future employers and graduate school admissions officials look very highly on travel abroad experiences because they show that candidates aren’t afraid to seek out new challenges or put themselves in difficult situations. This gives them a competitive edge in an increasingly difficult job market.
In our increasingly globalized world, taking a study tour to another country provides your child with a unique opportunity to develop skills that will benefit them both professionally and personally. Still, if you are a bit nervous about letting your son or daughter participate in a study abroad program, please try to focus on the positive impacts that this experience will bring.
