While the living standards of everyone lives increased, people kept on searching for better lives with advanced knowledge and Technology. Thus, we can find that knowledge only from developed countries. Education is very important for a person’s future career.

For this reason, many students want to get the best education that they can. Nowadays, studying abroad is also an option for many students.

In my opinion, I think studying abroad is the best way to improve ourselves. As you know, there are obvious advantages of studying abroad. Without a shadow of a doubt, the United States offers a very high-quality postsecondary education and is the preferred destination for Indian students wanting to study abroad.

We have opportunities to study the new technologies and most recent science achievements. In addition, we are equipped with the valuable and updated knowledge which may help us find jobs easily after graduating. This helps people to earn quickly how much they invested. So, it is not a big issue to invest huge amount.

According to the described information, MS is absolutely Investment… However, studying abroad is often expensive. We have to pay not only for our school fees but also for our living cost.

Therefore, finance may become the biggest problem. Consequently, it distracts our mind from studying to earning money. Moreover, changing the weather can affect our health, different cultures and customs may influence our mind and make us become less confident or even a victim of discrimination. Every day may turn into a struggle for survival in a strange country. If we don’t have enough physical and mental strength, we will fail to adjust ourselves in the new environment. As a result, we could neither study or gain beautiful experiences as we have expected.

In Conclusion, studying abroad offers great opportunities for a better future, it also has challenges that we must try our best to overcome what happened to make our dream come true.
