Traveling enriches the mind, body and soul of anyone with a sense of adventure and an open mind who embarks on a lengthy trip abroad.
If you have decided, or even are in the process of considering studying for your sixth form years internationally, then this is the article for you. Continue reading to learn of the main advantages of attending sixth form at an international school.
You Will Receive An All-Encompassing Education With A Balanced World View
A prestigious, established British international school that models their curriculum on a multi-national framework produces students with a significantly more expansive and enlightened perspective, which is eternally more desirable than home-schooled and locally taught pupils. With a plethora of far-reaching benefits, this more enlightened, educated and balanced way of seeing the world is also proven to be more desirable for prospective employers, particularly in the global job market.
You Will Engage In A Wide Range Of Multi-Cultural Extracurricular Activities
Attending an international sixth form not only encompasses a wider academic scope of learning, but will also expose you to different cultures, styles of art, genres of music and more, which you would otherwise never have been exposed to back home.
Wherever your destination country is, this exposure to a range of cultures will be an invaluable experience and truly the chance of a lifetime.
You May Even ‘Find Yourself’
Although there may well be no other cliche that is so often associated with travelling, it really is possible that, during your unique journey through international sixth form, that you may well discover a lot more about yourself as a person and discover what it is that you truly want out of your life.
The simple fact that you will be in a brand-new location, surrounded by an entirely fresh set of friends as well as new sights, sounds and smells, this sensory experience will do wonders for developing your self-esteem and sense of identity.
You Will Undoubtedly Form Bonds For Life
Obviously, it would be entirely unfeasible and somewhat naïve to assume that every single one of your prospective classmates will form the basis of your wedding party in years to come.
It is true to say, however, that logically speaking it is likely that the other international students on your course will share the same types of character-traits, ethics and general sense of bravery and adventure as yourself. The people who you will, later in your life, be labeled your ‘lifelong friends’ are usually those people with whom you have shared an unusual, magnificent or even downright magical experience with.
Your Confidence Will Greatly Improve
Whether you are a particularly shy and introverted character who is usually unassuming when it comes to trying new things and making new friends, or you already a fairly assertive individual, studying abroad undeniably broadens the horizons and boosts the confidence of those brave enough to step out of their comfort zone.
