Gaining different knowledge and cross-cultural experiences

Studying abroad will help students get new knowledge and ideas from foreign students through discussions or meetings.

Cost reduction

It is more reasonable to go to the home university for the first few years and the foreign university for the last few years than to go to the foreign university for all four years. If the students’ purpose is to get a bachelor degree in a foreign country, the pathways program is the best option to consider.

Transferring credits and earning a bachelor’s degree abroad

Students may have difficulties in meeting higher entry requirements from foreign universities at the beginning. By making use of transferring credits, they don’t have to take an entrance exam in foreign language. Hence, it is easier to enter foreign universities. In different ways, students can earn a bachelor’s degree abroad through the program though they do not study all four years at a foreign university. Foreign university graduation certification will be a great attraction for their better career pathways.

Better career opportunities after graduation
