An experience studying abroad immerses you in the culture and language of a country. At the same time, you are challenged to listen, study and learn in a foreign language within an educational system that is likely to be very different from MIT. Emerge with a broader understanding and appreciation of global differences and your own ability to meet the challenges created by these differences.
