The new age of travel, worldliness and balancing lifestyle with career aspirations has made study abroad very attractive to all students. It is a time of exploration and learning. People get to experience and immerse themselves in new cultures and see how other people in the world live. It is fantastic learning experience that more and more students in Singapore are considering. It has never been easier to study abroad with plane travel that makes thousands of miles only a few hours away.

Study abroad is a great time for learning and an even better time for fun. There are things in the UK and Singapore that cannot be seen or experienced anywhere else in the world. However, you must remember that it is all not a party. Sure, you should go out and socialize and meet friends and try new things but you must also remember that you need to study and work. The saying work hard play hard holds very true when it comes to study abroad. A job can help finance your weekend trips and your bar tabs.

The UK has so many attractions. They’re one of the first democracies in the entire world. You can go to the House of Commons and experience where monarchies fell and the people rose. You can go experience the wonder of Big Ben. I also highly recommend that if toy are on study abroad from Singapore that you experience a European football game. They are intense and a blast. They usually kick off at 12 and you will spend the morning in the pub making friends and bonding over the common enemy and the common goal. I promise it will be the best time of your life.

Study abroad programs in the United Kingdom are becoming more and more common. A large percentage of people study abroad during their university years. The practice is especially increasing in popularity in private schools. The students are well educated and world and therefore perfect candidates for the program. They are also some of ten best schools in the world so that they offer some of the best programs and finally, the private schools often have the necessary resources to send their students to study abroad in the UK.

One thing that you should remember if you are about to study abroad is that you should have a plan going in. Sure it is great to improvise and be in the moment but you don’t want to complete your semester and realize you missed doing a few things because you had no plan, you should look into finding a mentor or someone else who has studied abroad in the UK from Singapore and see what they did. Their inexperience may be invaluable.

One of the problems with study abroad is the different standards that some places may he relative to others. Some places and countries simply have superior schools with higher standards; Study abroad will not be all fun for some people. In places with great schools like the UK you will have to work but you will also learn a ton. There have even been studies that have shown that some places have more intelligent people. Some studies have linked air quality to testing scores. The cleaner the air, the higher the students scored on various tests like the SAT.
