What international students should do this summer?

Summer 2018 is here and finding out what to do over these 3 months can be a real headache. Especially to international students who are still abroad. However, we are here to help you and propose you some ideas of what international students should do this summer!

 

Travel

As I am an international student, I know that it can be hard to explore new countries while you are still studying. To be honest, during my first semester and I didn’t have time to leave my universities library. That is why after my first year of studying abroad, I decided to travel around over the summer. I used all possible tips on how students can travel on a budget and let my adventure begin. I think traveling over the summer is a perfect way to end your journey of being an abroad student. It is because, after a couple of years you don’t want to remember your studying abroad experience where the whole time you were sitting in a library. Trust me, you want to remember it as an adventure of your lifetime, where you discovered new places and met new people.

Stay in your study abroad destination and perfectly learn its native language

International students usually go abroad to those countries where locals don’t speak student’s native language. Therefore, staying there over the summer might be the perfect opportunity for you to learn a new language. I can’t tell you enough how beneficial it is for a person to be at least bilingual. Sometimes the fact that you know more than one language makes you more employable than others who have lots of experience.

Do an internship

Speaking about career perspectives, using your summer to do an internship abroad can open you so many doors. I understand that most students want to use the summer to have rest after a hard studying session. However, you don’t want to be that student who can’t find a job for the year after graduation. Most companies are giving a specific instruction for possible interns. This instruction is that all candidates must be enrolled in a university while applying for an internship. This means that if you decide to use your summers for rest, you are losing the opportunity to help your future career. Moreover, it also means that if you want to do an internship after graduation, you are losing some offers because of that one condition that I mentioned above.

Save money before you come

It’s obvious, isn’t it? But big cities such as London are expensive as attractions are not usually free, they have high costs for hotels and accommodations, and food and drink expenses tend to cost higher in comparison to other cities in the UK.

Prepare to hear different accents

In Scotland and England, as well as areas between Scotland itself it might be difficult for visitors to understand people. When speaking to locals within the city, be aware of the strong accents that they may have. If you don’t understand them, don’t be afraid to ask again. However, you can never make fun of the way people are talking, even though you are not used to it.

Wear warm clothes

In Scotland, it tends to be colder, windier and wetter than England, so be WARNED! Moreover, make sure to always carry umbrella or raincoat with you, because locals usually agree that weather forecasts in the UK are never correct, thus be prepared.
