Taking the decision to leave your family at home and go to university in another country can seem daunting. You might feel nervous about making new friends, being able to fit in, or finding your way around…
Deciding to take the initiative and reach for the passport can seem hard, but our network of colleagues in Europe is there to help you every step of the way – and so are we at Hollins & Fenn, with many years of experience in the International Education sector.
Most of our prestigious university partners are only a couple of hours train ride from the UK – or less than an hour on a budget airline – so you’re not going off the grid. What’s more, with the Internet, Whatsapp or Skype, nowadays home is just a click away and visiting home may even be quicker (and cheaper) than travelling within the UK from another British university.
Every year students tell us that going abroad for their degree was the best experience of their lives. Students who study abroad have a richer understanding of other cultures, are able to adapt to new situations and have a stronger confidence in their abilities – all skills that employers are looking for. Not to mention, students who go abroad tend to have the best Instagram feeds and a recent CHE survey found that 28% of students who went abroad to study met the love of their lives whilst they were there!
