As a not-for-profit study abroad provider as well as the writer and researcher with acewriters.org, we see the very real, life-changing impact that study abroad has on students first-hand, every day. Students may leave to study abroad feeling nervous, not knowing which direction to take after college, never having been away from friends and family for an extended period—but they come back transformed. In fact, 96% of our surveyed alumni reported an increase in self confidence after returning home, and 76% reported acquiring skill sets while studying abroad that influenced their career path.

In addition, participating in an internship while abroad increases students’ marketability in today’s competitive job market even more. Our studies also show that our students land jobs sooner after graduation and at higher starting salaries than those students who don’t study abroad. As Goodman and Berdan mention, so many of the barriers that used to keep students from studying abroad are disappearing. We believe that every student should study abroad—no matter what their financial situation or background is—it is the cornerstone of what we do.
