Studying Abroad - Introduction

The fact is that the English-speaking world – in particular the US and the UK, but also Canada and Australia – contains the majority of the top ranking universities in the world (according to most rankings). These countries provide good education, and studying there is an option that should be taken seriously.

Advantages and challenges related to studying abroad

Choosing to study abroad, for instance in the English-speaking world, may be a good investment for the future. Here you can read what NHO has to say about this, NHO - Kompetanse og utdanning.

Make your own list of the advantages and challenges to a student who wants to study abroad and then compare with those below.

Suggested advantages
  • interesting for future employers
  • personal growth
  • language learning
  • learning to know a culture from the inside
  • learning to take care of oneself
Suggested challenges
  • finding the proverbial "needle in the haystack" – i.e. which country and which institution should one choose?
  • formalities, like admissions procedures, language tests, local authorities, fees...
  • financing the studies (scholarships, loans...)
  • recognition of diplomas when coming home
  • coping with being far from home

However exciting studying abroad may seem, it is necessary to do some preparation and planning in order to get the most out of it. After considering the advantages and challenges, there is the question of what and where to study and then actually applying to the university that one has chosen.
