& Interning Abroad
It is an absolute reality that when you consider going abroad in search of greener
pastures, you would be in a dilemma as to what would benefit you the most
interms of career and personal growth. There are many choices to consider but
studying or interning is most popular.
If you are considering any of the two following is a list of differences between
When one is studying abroad the course pattern may not be that focused, whereas
an internship would be much focused; you would be putting energies into doing
what is most essential to your success at work.
I am not saying you would be having less fun in one that in the other, but the study
structure in most universities is designed in such a ways that the students have
enough time to relax, explore and have leisure time. That will not be the case with
internships. You will be working anywhere between 30 – 40 hours a week but you
will have time to have fun but it may be on your own initiative. You can make
friends at work place and plan your fun activities.
Internship may be a time for you to take more responsibility for your life and for
the work you do. This aspect may not be as strongly developed if you are a student

but rewards are high if you land at the right place.
As you know, everywhere the employers are looking for experience more than just
degrees. So, if you do an internship, which is considered as a job experience, you
are in a better position to land a good placement for yourself than just having a
Networking is one of the major benefits of studying or working abroad. Though
you will have a chance to network while studying the opportunities for networking
are much better while working as you would be placed in a real world situation
among the people, so you have a better chance to mingle with people and develop
the essential connections.
