    Things to consider about studying abroad:

    1. Your personality. Just because you’ve transported yourself across the world, doesn’t mean you’re going to change who you are. If you’re someone who’s a homebody and doesn't like meeting new people, you’re not going to change your feelings while abroad. Be true to yourself to see if this experience is something you are really up for. If you do decide to take the risk, you’ll definitely stretch yourself
    2. Budget. It definitely isn’t financially sound to quit your job and moving abroad. You have to be smart by having a budget and plan for how you’re going to pay for your travels. Make sure this is a commitment you are willing to stand by.
    3. Location. Do your research about each location and country before making a decision. What experience do you want to have? Big city? Small town? English speaking?

    Studying abroad was a dream of mine, and I am very glad I was able to go. Following your heart is important but considering the above will help you not get heart-broken about your experience.
