Hi, I was just wondering if anyone who has gone on a year abroad could tell me if they thought it was worth it. I am looking at going to America or Australia so language is not an issue. However, my main worry is that if I go on a year abroad in my second year of uni I will lose all my friends I made in first year is this the case??

Hi I'm am international student in America
I think it is worth it having moved from my home country. I get homesick sometimes and I miss my family but I found my university to be a very nice place..
However, I'm not on a year abroad, I'm doing my whole bachelors degree here..

You may lose touch with some of your friends just because of the distance, but since it is just for a year you guys can still be friends again, pick up where you left off..
But then again you can stay in touch a bit regularly and still be friends..
Also, you're going to a new place where you can make a few new connections and friends, so it might help in the end.. Also you may be going there to learn a lot of new stuff so it might be a 'worth it' move..
Hope it helps..
