Transcript of Studying Locally .vs. Studying Abroad

the benefits of studying locally Studying Locally .vs. Studying Abroad Going overseas for a university education excites lots of people. But, we cannot deny the fact that it has some disadvantages for students who go overseas for a university education. Studying locally is better than studying abroad The Cost Factor

Studying Locally:
Definitely cost beneficial to local students. You save approximately three times from the expected cost of studying abroad! Great savings - the comfort of your own bed, family's car to drive, the TV, the washing machine, everything a house needs! And of course, mom's home-cooked meals!

Studying Abroad:
The expenditure in the form of visa, passport, and flight charges! Not to mention foreign exchange rates for tuition fees, accommodation, transportation, and other necessities needed to survive! Lin Jun: Canada murder victim remembered as hard-working student SAFE and COMFORTABLE study locally (in China) study abroad (in Canada) by He Zhewei(Jay) COST LESS It’s hard to emphasize how different Eastern and Western cultures are. Here is yet another link for the uninitiated. I’m not going to discuss the differences but point out that the natural response is shun the foreign culture and recreate your own.

So the Chinese students form their own exclusive groups – eating, studying and playing together.

If Chinese students don’t break out of their own groups then they lose many of the opportunities and benefits of living abroad. In some instances English fluency digresses because of a lack of practice.(jameshuang.co.uk by James Huang, 2011) easy to adapt to the local workplace About 47,000 overseas Chinese students came back home in 2006, and according to recent statistics gathered randomly from 1,500 returnees by the World Human Resource Lab, 35 percent find it difficult to obtain a job and 40 percent feel they might be in the wrong business.(China.org.cn by Zhang Ming'ai, November 19, 2007)

Most of the returnees usually get low salary when they back home.

In 2011 the number of Chinese overseas returnees amounted to 18.62 million, an increase of 38.08%. However, a lot of people studying locally usually will be paid a high cost. it is difficult for returnees to find an ideal job after returning home, many people can only receive 3000 yuan (RMB, less than 500 dollars) monthly salary.(reading-news.us, June 22,2012) 本地学习的毕业生往往能更好地适应本地学习的毕业生往往能更好地适应 Most of local employers are more likely to hire the people who are educated by local universities. Because those students know the local culture better and easy to adapt to the working environment. There are a lot of health and safety issues trouble you when your English is not good! Chinese students often have English yet may still struggle in an academic environment. One reason is because of the specialized vocabulary particular to each subject, which is why universities ask prospective students to prove their vocabulary level. Another reason is that most learning is done via lectures. However, this demands that students listen, write and comprehend at the same time, which is one of the hardest skills.(jameshuang.co.uk by James Huang, 2011) Parental pressure VISA problem bank account SIM card Convenience! Feeling at ease within comfort zone and having familiarity at home-ground encourages better focus academically. Also, you'll know what's happening around town as opposed to coming home from abroad as a 'tourist'. Most importantly, you will not be deprived of the instant love and support from family members and friends. Study locally is better than study abroad. Because study locally cost less, be safer and more comfortable, and easy to adapt to the local working environment.
