Studying abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not only do you get to experience what college life is like in a different country, but you also get to discover more about the place and learn about their culture and yourself in the process. It's a learning experience both inside the classroom and outside of it. 

Getting to study overseas is a dream for many studentseven for celebrities! But between living independently and, to an extent, spending months and years away from family, pursuing studies abroad isn't always as easy as it seems. From a bachelor's degree to short courses, a few local personalities were actually able to study in a different country.

Here are a few stars who studied in universities abroad:

Jericho Rosales

FYI, the actor once took up courses in acting, directing, and producing at New York Film Academy back in 2011. Echo said in an interview that it was challenging to live as a student in New York because it was totally different from his life as an actor, but that the experience was also what "dreams are made of."
