Studying abroad is the ultimate opportunity to widen your horizons and future career possibilities. International experience is a true asset in life. You’ll have the chance not only to travel but also to experience a new culture from the perspective of a local. In doing so, you’ll gain a new perspective on your home country and, depending where you go, have a chance to learn a new language. It can even open the door to permanently resettling in your host country, or inspire you to pursue further international opportunities. Whether you go for a semester, a summer program, a year or more, here are ten of the most popular study abroad destinations to consider.
Few European capitals are as unique as the German capital of Berlin, a place characterized by a combination of its divisive history and modern, diverse openness. Home to some of the world’s most famous landmarks, including the Berlin Wall, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, culture-rich Berlin is also among the most sought-after destinations for foreign students. One of the most popular places to study there is the internationally acclaimed Humboldt University, which has enrolled 29 Nobel Prize winners. Freie University also has a European Studies Program (FU-BEST) for international students that is offered in English.
