Spending a semester abroad is a great way to learn more about the subjects you are interested in, gain first-hand knowledge of other cultures, and get to see the world from a new lens.
Above all, the experience will help you grow more independent, mature, and tolerant. Ultimately, guess who values international experience and strength of character? Employers. In other words, traveling increases your chances of landing a good job.
You will also gain self-confidence and learn to appreciate your home country. Many LAU students who study abroad come to realize how well the university had prepared them for their classes — where, in some cases, they perform better than local students.
