So, you wanna be a BU Student? If you’re interested in what being an International student coming to the UK involves I can help.
Studying abroad may be one of the most beneficial experiences available for a University student. Coming to BU has meant I can not only study for my course but also learn all about the culture of the UK. Here is a list of my top 6 reasons to study at BU!
1. See the world
When studying at BU, you won’t be limited to traveling around the UK – you can visit neighbouring countries as well! You’ll have the option to travel to various parts of Europe including Paris, Barcelona and Rome – all in a matter of hours.
Another reason you might consider studying abroad is for the chance to experience different styles of education. You’ll have the chance to see a side of your course that you may not have been exposed to at home.
3. Career opportunities
When you finish your study abroad program and return home, you will return with a new perspective on culture, language skills, a great education, and a willingness to learn which all helps you to be more employable.
4. Find new interests
You’ll also have the chance to discover other new and exciting forms of entertainment that you might not have considered back home. Plays, movies, dancing, nightclubs, and concerts are just a few activities that you can enjoy.
5. Make lifelong friends
BU gives you the opportunity to meet new lifelong friends from different backgrounds.
In addition to rewarding personal relationships, these friends can also be important networking tools later down the road.
6. Personal development
There is nothing quite like being on your own in a different country. You might find that studying abroad brings out your independent nature. After all you might as well take this opportunity to travel the world with no other commitments other than to study and learn about new cultures. Studying at BU is an experience unlike any other!
