Study in abroad is very challenging. Some people think getting student visa is very hard. However, the hardest part starts when you touch down in your country of study. Challenge starts from the first day

Every student desires the opportunity to study in any educational institution of their choice outside their own country. The ultimate exciting moment of student life is to go abroad and study. Student life is a challenging life. If that is the case then going out and studying can make you realize how much more challenging it can be.


Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. – Joshua J. Marine


We don’t have to face many problems to study in our own country, because everyone knows our environment. But when it comes to studying outside, we have to enter a completely different world. There are some problems we have to face. We are trying to discuss 5 problems out of them.  Hopefully, this discussion will help you get mentally prepared and find a way to solve the problem

Language barrier –

Linguistic problems are the first and most we have to deal with. Each country has its unique language and its regional usage is much higher. English is an international language and almost all students are currently proficient in English. But in a new environment, you will often find inconsistencies between your slang, accent, and the slang of your classmates and the people around you, and it is unfamiliar to you. Sometimes you may feel like an outsider. However, there is nothing to be upset about. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. Many people master it very quickly. The sooner you can master it, the better.

We have to make a habit of talking to people, we have to create humanity to learn from them. They will help you. Even if you are in an embarrassing situation, you have to find some educational aspects from there.


Culture shock –

Like language, another significant problem is culture shock. Students have to deal with this problem the most and it is much more difficult to master it. You have to give a lot of time to go to a completely different environment and adapt to your familiar culture, religious customs, food habits, customs. However, in this case, it can not be boring or disliked. Because we have to respect their culture and customs. We need to be familiar with their culture for our own needs. You have to understand their culture. We have to enjoy their culture, food, customs. Only then can this problem be overcome.

Homesickness –

It is very natural that when we leave our familiar environment, people, and everything we know and shift somewhere else, the memories of the past drive us away. It can be called a human instinct. And when you have to leave your own country and go elsewhere alone for study, then surely it becomes more powerful. While this is normal, it is a major problem for new students. But we should not resort to depression for this. When we come back we will have everything as before, a familiar environment, all dear friends.

In this age of information technology, we can solve this problem at least a little bit. We can overcome our loneliness through social communication. Besides, we will make friends wherever we go to study. Gradually this Homesickness problem will be solved.

Styles of living –

This is another problem that students deal with well. It is very difficult to adapt one’s lifestyle to the unfamiliar environment and their culture instead of the familiar environment and lifestyle. But it will be solved gradually. It will take some time. Some habits need to be changed, some habits need to be created. We need to maintain a lot of discipline.


Financial matter-

More or less everyone has to go through financial problems. If you go out to study, you have to spend a lot of money on tuition fees, food, accommodation, travel, etc. Many have a Funds Transfer Scheme (FTS) and received money every month from there. But it will not work if it is your only recourse! You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. And the process of making money is not exactly what many people do. As a result, they go through a lot of problems. Many harms their studies.

Always try to study abroad with a scholarship. You have to manage a part-time job as soon as possible. It is very good to have the habit of cooking and eating by yourself. Because the restaurants there are very expensive. Make it a habit to use public transport. And always try to follow the rules and regulations there. Because you may have to pay a much higher fine for breaking the law.


In conclusion never struggle about the struggle. In other words, life’s full of ups and downs. So if you’re struggling, don’t worry, everyone else has or will at some point. — Sean Covey

Although we have to deal with many problems when we go out and study, we should learn from them and never give up.
