Life isn’t like the movies, but those places in the movies actually exist, for the most part at least. The best part is that you can visit these places at an affordable price!
The thought of studying in another country for a semester or longer may sound scary, but college is the best time to go because you can get funded to do so. Studying abroad will give you the experience of a lifetime, and will really help you expand your horizons. In addition to your normal studies, studying abroad is the best way to learn a foreign language and to get to know another culture first-hand.
If you aren’t comfortable with leaving for an entire semester or year, UNO offers summer programs that only last 2-6 weeks. A wonderful thing about studying abroad is the large pool of scholarships that are available. Just by Google-ing study abroad scholarships, you’ll be brought to many sites that offer tons of them. Also, if you study abroad via foreign exchange, you will be paying your tuition instead of international tuition at the other university.
