Most of the students in colleges all across in India (undergraduate or post graduate education) are always wondering the same thing throughout their education – “Should I go abroad for higher education/career option or not?” This has been an age old dilemma for those in their early 20s. They see their friends and seniors make the decision and they wonder if they should also pursue the same opportunity too. Some are able to make the decision quickly and have everything beautifully crafted out. They have written their GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and have their college admissions,scholarships, assistantships,visas and financial details neatly ironed out. Still others, might have offer letters and visas from prospective companies in their hand with great joy!
For others, it is still a very confusing decision. While new lands seem to hold promising new opportunities, one is still not able to come to a concrete decision. Of course, while the decision is entirely yours and yours alone, some of my personal thoughts on this:
But given the chance and opportunity and everything else is fine and the stars are perfectly aligned for a stint abroad, do it today! 🙂 You will enjoy the experience…. 🙂
On a side note, I am sure there are plenty of other reasons like health conditions of family members or financial constraints or any other reason for one to not move abroad.
Again my two cents thought on the topic! 😉
