What are the best USC study abroad destinations?

I’m looking for USC study abroad programs right now. I’ve always dreamed of spending some time in other countries. I’m fascinated by the diversity of cultures in the world and want to see how people in other places live. Studying abroad for a year is the best opportunity I can have. It will be ideal to spend so much time experiencing new things. However, I’ll also consider the spring break study abroad offers to have a plan B. I just want to be sure that I will get a chance to relocate. So, I’m patiently waiting for your advice and any tips you can give me.

Good choice! I know a few people going to the University of South Carolina. They all dream about spring break abroad studies. Well, I think they don’t understand the advantages of the full year. I’m applying to it next year as well. I’ve already read about USC international programs and students’ reviews.

I’ve decided to visit London if I’m given a chance. I think that this is the best place for a young student who wants to discover the world and get an impressive academic record. Social life is so hectic, diverse, and colorful there that I cannot resist. I know that many students and young people choose this destination, so, I’ll get a chance to meet people from all over the world. This is the most amazing part about it—you choose one place but get acquainted with so many cultures. People come to London not only to study but to work as well. So, I’m sure that I’ll befriend people of all ages and professional spheres. Of course, you have to be highly communicative to interact with so many people and I’m ready to be talkative.

Choosing abroad studies for a year, you have to think about your program really hard. I agree that a spring break is less serious and a whole year is a step that you should carefully consider. Maybe, you can start with a small trip to check whether the whole thing is good for you.

I can recommend you visiting Tokyo as well. Japan offers you a great culture that differs from our own greatly. It is beautiful, somewhat mysterious, and awfully graceful. This is one of those breathtaking cultures that has many secrets in stock for you. I’d like to travel there sometime in the future as well. Unfortunately, I’ve heard that you need at least two semesters of college-level Japanese to apply for this program and I don’t know the language at all. I doubt I’ll ever be able to learn it.

A great option for the spring break abroad studies is Australia. Just think about those amazing sceneries! As a USC student, you have a great advantage when choosing this country—language skills. Besides, if you don’t know any other language but want to experience other cultures, Australia is as great as England for you. Among all those international studies destinations, this one is the favorite choice of people who want to be closer to nature. Of course, the life in big cities is as urban, but the rest of the country is wild and untamed.

All these places sound amazing, especially for people from the U.S.A. As a student from Europe, I would like to visit America as well. However, we have a transfer from USC in our university and he is very glad to be in Europe. So, I’m sure that visiting Germany will be a great experience for you. Here, the classes are taught by great professors, students are kind, and our country is really cool. Berlin is not a center of the German culture, but you can visit small towns that are full of traditions of the past.

Here, we are proud of our architecture and historical places. I’m sure you will find many people from other countries among our student as well. What I love the most is the fact that due to our location, we have many visitors both from the west and east.  If you choose a Berlin USC study abroad program, my friends and I will gladly welcome you to the country.
