Inspiration Behind My Motivation to Study Abroad

What is your motivation to study overseas? (essay)

The idea of studying abroad has always greatly appealed to me. I am currently in my fourth year at TRU working towards getting my Bachelors of Education. I was waitlisted for the 2018/2019 enrolment year and recently found out that I was not accepted. Rather than let this be a negative impact on my education, I feel that now is the perfect time for me to pursue a semester abroad through TRIJ. To express my motivation to study abroad, in this essay, I will discuss how being waitlisted for my Bachelors of Education program has given me the perfect opportunity to pursue a semester abroad through TRIJ. This experience will allow me to broaden my horizons and gain an international perspective on education. Additionally, it will allow me to immerse myself in a new culture, expand my network, and develop valuable skills, including adaptability and independence. I believe that studying abroad will provide me with invaluable experiences that will enhance my future career as a teacher and allow me to better serve my students.

In 2013 I had the opportunity to nanny for a family in the Netherlands for 4 months. My time in Holland gave me experiences I never thought I would have. It taught me a lot about myself and shaped who I am today. It let me understand what I was capable of when I stepped out of my comfort zone and became a self-sufficient, independent adult. Adapting to a new lifestyle showed me a different side to life. I was surprised and challenged in ways I never even thought about. This experience allowed me to be the best version of myself.

The universities I have chosen in the United Kingdom, The University of Wales, Trinity Saint David and The University of Bournemouth both have unique learning environments that I believe will foster my growth as a student and as a person. Being someone who flourishes in smaller classrooms, the smaller campuses I see as an asset as they implement deep community involvement. I want to go on study abroad because my love of travel and experiencing the world I live in. Although I will face challenges, it will allow me to flourish.

Living in a different country made me a more confident, courteous and welcoming person to the people around me. I am excited to experience this again as I feel that it will allow me grow into the person I am supposed to be which will aid my educational experience with Thompson Rivers University in the future.
