    hi everyone!!
    I'm an international student from spain, and i'll go to uni in 2010 , it's only one year left, but i'm quite nerveous and uncertain if i should go to study abroad or not... first i'll miss my family so much , i'm very close to my family, and i think i will not resist 3 months without seen'em (i'll be back for christmas!!) , but looking at the brightside i'll have better job opportunities and a lots of new experiences living abroad!!! what you guys thinks???

    P.D: i've never studied in english thought i very fluent with it

    study abroad can be great fun, and a great life experience, living and learning in another country for a year, i would go for it personal, very one would be nervous not only is it a new uni, new people, but a whole new country, which is understandable, 3 months not a long time, i mean uni terms are what 10-11 weeks depends where you go, it will fly by,

    its down to you really

    Go for it. You'll miss your parents less than you think, and you'll get used to being away from them after a couple of weeks.

    Lots of unis have reading weeks, so if you can afford it you could always go home for a week in the middle of each term.

    i thinks both area right!! it's up to me! I have friends from spain who're now in england studying and i asked them if they misses their families .. they answer that you ger used to it in 2 months!
    I know I should go to study abroad because it opens a lots of doors and ... you're cool in your town! :p: , anyway it is a very risky situation , because i might want to go home in england , and go home where i don't have sit in any uni !!!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh:woo:

    I'm also an international student and I decided to start studying in the UK this fall.

    On the one hand, I'm pretty nervous about it I really have mixed feelings... I fear that I won't make friends, that I won't understand anything or that I'll become really homesick

    But on the other hand I'm so happy to go and to get to know many other people, a different culture and country and another language

    Does anyone of you have experience with that? Because I feel kind of lost right now

    If it's any consolation, it's super scary for some of us going to universities not very far away as well!

    Really good point :yes: And when I think clearly about it, it doesn't matter how far away you are from home, there is always the possibility that you can be homesick
