   Why study design abroad?

Studying abroad will change your life. You will come back a new person. Going overseas for higher education is as much fun as it is beneficial. There are various leading design colleges/institutes in countries like UK, USA, Italy, Singapore, Germany and Australia which impart high quality education and give international exposure to the students in terms of learning and creativity. The education offers an all round development of an individual.

Education facilities & environment:

India is still at its genesis when it comes to fashion and design related education. There are only handful of quality institutes which provide design courses. Moreover, the specializations offered are also limited. Where as countries like UK, US, Singapore, France or Italy have a wide range of design/fashion specializations one can choose from. These countries provide a modern learning environment facilitating students to grow, think efficiently and independently. There are various ways of teaching involving lectures, tutorials and workshops etc. The assessment methods are designed to analyse a students’ overall development and mastery of a particular subject. Visiting international fashion shows and exhibitions also add to the attraction. Internships with leading international brands pave the way to a brighter career growth.

Personal development:

Beyond affecting career or educational direction, one of the most significant and intangible impacts of studying abroad is students’ increased confidence and vitality. They develop a more sophisticated and matured way of looking at the world. They have the understanding and skills to navigate effectively, humanely and positively across different cultures. Students widen the ability to view the world and its issues from several perspectives.

Intercultural development:

Study abroad educators often assert that one of the goals of study abroad is to train future global leaders to be more effective, respectful of other cultures and political and economic systems, and willing to take a stand for the world’s welfare, not just what benefits a specific country.

Career development:

After studying abroad, most students never view their education in the same way again. A powerful experience, it often influences subsequent educational endeavors, including the decision to pursue higher degrees. Students return home with a greater vigor for academic pursuits and a renewed interest in lifelong learning. In many cases, students also develop foreign language skills, experiencing a language firsthand in the streets of a foreign city, in a local university course or while living with local roommates will make an impact on language skills. These experiences have a positive impact on the future career growth of the students. Listing a study abroad experience on your resume can also enhance your chances for job success. Having taken this initiative not only says something about your academic achievements, but also about your personal ambition and determination. More and more employers are seeking out culturally aware and experienced employees who can work effectively in an increasingly global workplace.
