Studying abroad can be one of the most exciting, fulfilling and even nerve-wracking rites of passage that any student can experience. This unforgettable adventure can bring you lifelong friendships, provide you with an increased chance of and opportunity for working abroad in the future, and deepen your understanding of the world and various cultures.
Asia is not only rich in terms of resources and history but also in amazing landscapes, people, learning and art. Today, the guys from Asia Exchange are happy to share their expertise in study exchanges and tell you more about the most exciting destinations for your studies abroad in Asia and opportunities that are waiting for you there.
China is a must destination for anyone interested in the future of our globe. China’s economic growth has been remarkable for decades, and it’s importance will only grow bigger and bigger. Chinese language is both fascinating and useful – who knows, maybe English won’t be the only lingua franca forever?
Shanghai in particular is a good choice, if students want to live and breathe the atmosphere of international business and set up their own networks.
Thailand is a great study destination for anyone travelling to Asia for the first time or living abroad for the first time. Country is safe and Thai people are most likely the kindest nation in the world. It’s the land of the smiles!
Bangkok is one of the most iconic cities in Asia and also the most visited city in the world in 2016. It has everything to offer and there’s no limit to what you can do on your spare time.
Phuket on the other hand is much smaller, but must be one of the most charming places on earth to live and study. The landscape and nature are nothing short of outstanding, but I’d say the best part of Phuket is the warm and welcoming island culture. In a nutshell, Phuket is great option for those who want to experience a different and unfamiliar culture in safe and welcoming surrounding.
I encourage anyone considering study abroad not to forget Korea. It is culturally intriguing with numerous interesting sub-cultures and a mixture of ancient traditions and dynamic modern environment. Quality of education is outstanding and the academic field highly competitive.
Seoul for example is a fantastic city for any student and it was chosen the world’s fourth best student city in 2017 by QS Ranking. I’m not surprised, as Korea and Seoul truly stole my heart during my study abroad semester and I’m always looking forward to the next time I can return there.
Malaysia, Asia’s emerging higher education hub, attracts more and more international students. It’s a great study abroad destination, because you get high quality of life at a low cost.
Kuala Lumpur is the melting pot of cultures, religions – and food! There’s never-ending shopping opportunities, delightful attractions and diverse entertainment options. Whatever you are looking for, KL has it! And after the semester has ended, you can easily reach numerous beautiful destinations in Southeast Asia from the KLIA airport.
Japan has a lot to offer for any western student, since it is so different from everything else. I studied abroad in Japan myself, and the culture gave me so many new perspectives on thinking about myself, my own culture and other cultures. I can’t praise highly enough how much I gained in terms of personal development.
The higher education is world-class, nature is beautiful like a poem and culture deeply immersing. Knowing Japan will certainly help you in the job market as well.
Indonesia is one of the biggest countries in the world yet still unknown to many. Bali, a long-time exchange student favorite, and Lombok, Bali’s fast-growing neighbor, are among its most beautiful islands. The rich cultural heritage, stunning nature and the unique lifestyle will never cease to amaze you.
Bali is the best choice for those who enjoy bigger crowds and action and Lombok for those who wish to experience the culture and nature to the fullest. If you happen to be into surfing or wish to learn it, both Bali and Lombok offer world-class waves. Plus, you get to wake up each morning to enchanting sunshine.
What’s better than returning home from your study abroad experience and telling ALL your friends of the amazing adventures you’ve had and the awesome people you’ve met in one of the most dynamic regions of the world?
