Results

This is a comprehensive and universal study abroad guide to discover your motivations and barriers when making a decision about engaging in a study abroad program. The scoring algorithm of the tool is constantly being improved, however Conquer Abroad cannot guarantee that scoring high on motivations mean that you are ready to study abroad or that scoring high on barriers mean that you shouldn’t study abroad at all (and vica-versa).

Nevertheless the results should give you a good idea on which barriers should be double-checked before studying abroad and which motivations could be turned into Study abroad goals.

In case you have any questions, please contact us.
