6 Reasons Why Venturing Overseas Will Make You Smarter

We see a huge change in students who have travelled abroad on an exchange program; these can be in areas of expanded cultural awareness, a greater sense of perspective on the world, improved language skills, or higher levels of confidence and self-esteem.  

Researchers have discovered that living abroad for any significant duration of time also makes people smarter. 

Work The World have published a great study highlighting 6 reasons why travelling overseas will make you smarter.  These include:

  1. Awaken creativity
  2. Improve Communication
  3. Increase earning potential
  4. Improve cognitive skills
  5. Increase productivity
  6. Boost self-awareness
