This might sound of like I'm jealous and maybe I am a little but what's the big deal studying overseas? If it's a matter of getting experience, might as well join a homestay program or plan a holiday there instead of enjoying yourselves, getting hit with assignments all the time, complaining you're homesick and stuff. If the course isn't offered here then it's understandable, but why go through so much trouble paying such a large sum to get a miserable sheet of paper that can be obtained locally. Christ the amount I see spent just to study overseas is equivalent to a fully refurbished terrace house =_=.
To me, studying abroad means higher chance to land into a job since locals just love overseas stuffles but recently I think that chance can be obtained without going across the sea. It's just a matter of your involvements, confidence and how you bring yourself. One person in particular went abroad and came back working as some.... HR 'kuli'... I honestly think that the requirements for this kind of job is extremely low that even an SPM graduate can apply as well.
Call me an ass for being so critical about what people do with their lives but I just find it so hard to believe that these kind of people are fooling around and throwing money while there's so much can be done with that kind of money. Maybe... I could be jealous seeing them spending as though they own a money tree XD.
