There are so many benefits to spending some time living abroad, and Europe is such an immensely diverse and vibrant place it’s not hard to see why it’s such a popular choice. It’s one of my personal dreams, so it’s something I’ve studied in great detail. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet some new and interesting people, learn about a new way of life, try exotic new foods and also learn another language. You an immerse yourself totally within a new culture and broaden your horizons.
According to the Guardian, 30,000 students from the UK alone went to mainland Europe to study in 2013, and the Institute for Public Policy Research estimated there were 5.5 million British people living abroad in Europe in 2006. That figure is likely to have increased, with Europe becoming more and more popular year on year. It’s now becoming a more and more popular destination for people from all around the world.
