I have written several articles about studying abroad and getting the most bang for your buck (scholarships). Another way to add value to your academic career is enrolling into a university abroad. For many first time travelers, this might be a big leap.
In my article about attending a foreign institution, I mentioned that one way to get an authentic experience is applying directly to a university abroad. This will probably be one of the most challenging and rewarding applications of your life.
To make this process more bearable I strongly encourage you to apply to universities with a large international population. Universities with a significant international population have systems and procedures in place to streamline the process.
The following are recommendations of universities to consider with a significant international student body. You can check out the full list at the Times of Higher Education.
