studying overseas actually strengthens ur relationship with ur parents.... if u were brought up right, it doesnt matter if u are a million miles away from ur parents.... freedom is good but good kids know their limits.... partying and all that is a great plus... but i dont party.... it seems like fun but ...... none for me thanks...

Hahaha. It's because partying is part of our life here. Besides study, then it should be party. Studying in oversea is totally different from msia. Here, they test you on your understanding of the course, they wont ask you about terms and those stupid unnecessary stuff. They wont purposely make the test tough for you. I even have classes wid not test, juz assg. :) You gain knowledge here. It may be tough but studying in oversea is fun. And of coz, you will have lotz of freedom. Do watever you want, but make sure you set a limit for yourself. My town is known as the retirement town, so I will say life here is BORING. No doubt, you goto watch how you spend your $. But you see, there things were you really need to spend. So spend your $ wisely. I am an international study, n international student cant work off campus (in Canada). My Uni is damn small, not many part time job.

yeah.. it's all about learning process... it's not about how much the lecturer teach... it's aout how much u gain and learn... my permit dont allow students to work tho.. b4 that they have a B permit which allows to do anything... but now L permit... which is only a student permit.. anyway wont have time 4 that...classes not fix..and it's really long hours..so if thinking bout working...better 2 forget it

My comment : It depends on where u go to.. but no matter where u go to.. if u're optimistic.. then it'll be a fun experience... if u're given the chance, u should take it..Studying overseas is the key to adulthood,a key to maturity given by ur parents
