You will prepare and submit a term paper on Can Study Abroad Strengthen Ones Self Esteem. Your paper should be a minimum of 1250 words in length. Instead of completing education in the domestic country, many people are going abroad for their higher education. For example, most of the wealthy Middle Eastern youths from countries like, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar are going to either the US or UK for their educational purpose. Educationalists believe that the interaction with the foreign culture will help the students to improve their educational standards and self-esteem. On the other hand, even the US and UK universities encourage their students to take enrolment in foreign universities at least for a semester or year. If the aim of sending students for overseas education is for getting quality education alone, there is no point in sending the US or UK students for overseas assignments.
Most the people believe that the purpose of sending students for overseas education is for getting a quality education. But many of the published data has shown that overseas education provides more than that. The major aim of this research is to find out ‘how one’s self-esteem is affected’ because of his education in a foreign country. Moreover, it also explores other benefits associated with studying abroad apart from the development of self-esteem.
In many countries, both private and public organizations give more respect and recognition to those who completed their studies abroad. For example, in Asian countries, people who have the backing of a US or UK education will get more opportunities than those who have completed some level of education in their mother country. These organizations believe that in the current era of globalization, foreign education will help the students to get more awareness about the external world and their self-esteem would be increased largely due to the interactions with the multicultural environment.
