Abstract

This presentation questions whether, in a day and age where technology and education is constantly advancing for developing countries, studying abroad still holds any benefits as students can now find the same level of education in their home countries as they did abroad. Based on research and personal experience, one can see that despite this enhancement in developing countries, studying abroad still has positive results as there are many aspects involved in the process of studying abroad other than the level of education. For example, experiences attained, friendships made, exposure to new cultures, teaching methods, books and ways of life are all essential for the growth of an individual and all these aspects can be acquired from studying abroad. Negative aspects of studying abroad are also addressed; for example, homesickness and culture shock can be challenges. However, these challenges can easily be overcome which is why studying abroad is still a viable option for students from developing countries.
