Pop Quiz: What's the only country in the world that receives more international students than the United States?
Pop Answer: jolly ol' England.
is the country that gave birth to William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens
and Jane Austen; to Elton John, Amy Winehouse and the band Coldplay.
This country has some serious street cred.
And, like a stand out on British Idol - which subsequently spawned American Idol - England's got range. You can study business in metropolitan London,
study literature at Shakespeare's birthplace at Stratford-Upon-Avon or
study history in 1,000-year-old Roman baths at the aptly named Bath.
fact, no matter where you go in England, you're bound to run into
something educational. And more often than not, that something just
happens to also be both fascinating and fun.
Get a Stellar EducationHistory majors have Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey. Art
students have the Tate Modern and National Gallery. Literature fans
have...well, is there any other country in the world with as storied a
literature past than England? The point is, England has something for
every student. And not just something like, 'Oh yeah, I guess that'd be
cool to see.' Something like, if you don't study abroad in England, you
won't have gotten the full college experience. England can provide you
an educational growth spurt that's the equivalent of transforming a
jockey into Shaquille O'Neal. You truly will be changed forever, that
can be all but guaranteed.
many educational options are available to you in England. From the big
names like Oxford and Cambridge to any of the 3,000 other English
universities that accept international students, you can expect to
receive a top-notch education.
perhaps the best part - English is spoken in England, so you can
experience the joys of visiting another country without having to learn a
new language! Although you may want to watch those old Austin Powers
classics to catch up on popular phrases like 'Bob's your uncle.' And you
may never figure out how exactly something called spotted dick can be
considered a delicacy.
Experience a Rich and Varied CultureIf
you've ever seen 'Monty Python,' then you already know the English have
a healthy and quirky sense of humor (much funnier than the writers of
this article). Taking that into account, and considering the friendly
personalities that comes along with that, it won't be long before you
feel at home in England. And whether you tour the rolling countryside,
travel the cities in a double-decker bus or take in a game of cricket,
you can bet your knickers you'll have a great time.
you really think about it, England is the best possible study abroad
location for college students. You can enjoy the lively nightlife found
and take leisurely strolls along the Thames River, but you will also be
pushed to be the best student you can be, and may very well learn more
in one semester abroad than in all the other years at your home
