When it comes to the choice of whether to study abroad or at home, different people have different opinions. Some see more advantages to overseas study, while others believe that the disadvantages outweigh its advantages.
With the deepening of reform and opening-up of our country, many people can go abroad for further study. They insist that there are more modern research facilities, world famous professors and excellent environment in some foreign colleges and universities, which lay a perfect foundation for their future development. However, there are still many people who favor studying at home. They argue that, for one thing, studying abroad is too expensive and therefore doesn’t pay off. For another, there are no language and cultural barriers if they study in our country.
Just as the old saying goes, “Every advantage has its disadvantage,” so I believe both opinions are acceptable in some sense. If students have the chances and financial resources, they should seize the opportunity to go abroad and broaden their eyes. On the other hand, if conditions don’t permit, they can pursue their studies at top universities in our country. What counts is not the place where they study, but what they can learn.
