Don’t believe everything you hear. You might be surprised that studying abroad is more attainable than you think! Here are 6 debunked myths about studying abroad.

Myth: Studying abroad is way too expensive.

Fact: While many study abroad programs can break the bank, some programs are affordable. Globally Abroad offers programs that are affordable to most along with simple payment plans to help along the way. There is also an option to raise money for your journey overseas. We’ve partnered with Fundmytavel which is a great tool to use to help raise the funds it takes to make your dream of going abroad happen.

Myth: I can’t study abroad alone. I have to go with my friends.

Fact: Yes, it may seem scary at first to travel a thousand miles away from home not knowing anyone, but that won’t last long. You will have the opportunity to meet amazing people that you may have missed if you had your best friend with you. Plus, you will learn how to be the most independent and confident version of yourself.

Myth: I can only study abroad in English speaking countries because I don’t speak another language.

Fact: There are lots of programs that offer language immersion programs. The best way to learn a new language is to immerse yourself in the country. There will be many English speakers along the way, but you will pick up on local slang and terms to help make your trip even more exciting.

Myth: I don’t have time to study abroad.

Fact: If your dream is to go abroad, you can make time for it. Globally Abroad’s programs are offered in the summer so, skip the summer job and go overseas. Another plus is our programs last up to 21 days, so even if you can’t skip your summer job, take a few days off then jump back into your work!

Myth: I can’t study abroad because I need to gain experience in my field of study.

Fact: Studying abroad looks great on a resume! 90% of the graduates who’ve studied abroad have found jobs within 6 months of graduating. Even though experience in your field of study is great, experience overseas shows potential employers you can adapt, able to diversify yourself, independent, and can communicate effectively.

Myth: All of the paperwork, deadlines, and planning seem like a hassle and a bit difficult.

Fact: Planning is a big part of studying abroad, but with Globally Abroad, planning is super easy! Every program offers housing, travel insurance, and advise on airfare along with your payment plans. Our program directors and program liaisons will guide you every step of the way. You will also enroll in the pre-travel course before your journey, which is included in the program. In addition to our help, there are great apps like, PackPoint and Tripit, to help make planning your journey a little bit easier!
