There is no doubt that universities particularly in the western countries are ranked among the highest performing institutions in the world. This is because the universities have excellent teaching facilities and extra-curricular programs in place. For example, Manchester University located in the UK – an NCUK partner is known for its academic and research excellence, the University has 25 Nobel Prize winners and 91% of Manchester’s recent graduates go straight into employment or continued studies. Muscat Foundation Academy partners with more than 45+ leading universities across the world that you can be a part of after completing your foundation program in Muscat, Oman.
While the main reason to study abroad can be to get a better education, another reason is you can explore new cultures and traditions in a new country. Each country has different foods, music, entertainment and beautiful natural and man-made attractions. For example, Australia is well-known for its pristine beaches while London is famous for its landmarks such as the Big Ben, Tower Bridge and more. Muscat Foundation Academy allows you to progress to several countries such as the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean, Malaysia, UAE and more.
International exposure can allow you to meet new friends, travel to other countries and gain priceless experiences that you would not experience staying in Oman or your current country that you are residing in. This can be a great opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and push your potential to heights you didn’t know were possible. Perhaps you can take up a new sport and realise that you are good at it!
When you choose to study abroad, you immediately open your career to new opportunities. Employers prefer to hire graduates who have studied abroad as it proves that the candidate is independent, culturally aware and flexible to adapt to a new environment. Apart from this, students can get a work visa after completing university. Muscat Foundation Academy will guide students who wish to apply for this option by ensuring they choose a suitable country that offers post-work visas, such as the UK Graduate Visa.
We all want to be independent at some point. The best way to do this is by moving to a different country. You will be able to acquire new skills that will be beneficial that you would not need if you were to not move abroad. For example, you can learn how to cook or get better at making new friends and starting a conversation.
