2 | And you’ll actually learn how to budget

Learning how to manage your money is an essential life skill to master, especially if you’re still on your way to total independence. Learning how to spend your money wisely and knowing all the right places to get the best deals when you’re shopping or planning a night out will serve you well.

3 | You’ll see the real strength of your relationships

Being away from friends and family back home is one of the more difficult parts of any study abroad experience, but there is a positive side to it! Living abroad will make your bonds with the ones you love even stronger, and it’ll show you which relationships matter most. You’ll even make some lifelong friends at EC!
