Did anyone here study abroad for a semester (or two)? I never did, which I kind of regret. A friend of mine studied abroad in Scotland and really loved it, which makes me wish I had gone abroad even more!

No, but one of my college roommates did the Semester at Sea program. She really loved it and said it changed her life.

I have also always regretted that I never looked into doing semester abroad. I just sort of had the idea that I couldn't do it, for various reasons. I should have at least looked into it before deciding it wouldn't work for me.

I would love to study abroad but I don't think I'll get the chance, at least not now. I just don't have the money and it's just so convenient to stay here and finish my degree.

I would love to have studied abroad but unfortunately, that never happened. I would always encourage anyone who has the opportunity to study abroad or work abroad. The experience seems invaluable.

I would really like to, but it seems like you would have to have a lot of money to do it. I was also wondering - do you learn anything differently than you would if you didn't travel overseas, or is it just the experience of being in another country that you gain?

I would have loved to study abroad, but never found an opportunity I could afford. Living in another country would've been such an educational experience for me.

Studying abroad has always been one my dreams. I wasn't able to do it in college, but I'm still looking forward to pursuing a graduate or post-graduate course abroad. Living in another country and being immersed in a different culture is an amazing and fruitful experience.

Are there certain courses you would have to take to study abroad? Do you actually learn something about other cultures, or is it just learning your regular courses, just in a different country?

Study Abroad is a life-changing experience and one of the most rewarding things in life.
I was looking for best countries for study abroad having good weather, english speaking and low cost of living and i got some countries like United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, France, Australia, Mexico, Germany, Ireland, China and Cost Rica.
Can anyone tell me that which one is best ?
