Perhaps one of the top highlights of studying abroad is the option for amazing weekend trips. If you choose a program somewhere in Europe, it's fairly easy to country hop with just a couple of days, and it's also extremely affordably, too. In Australia, you could be snorkeling on the coast somewhere just hours after acing your midterm exam. Or in Japan, your Saturday could be spent learning how to make fresh sushi in an authentic cooking class. The cultural and adventure opportunities are all within reach during study abroad.
