The world-renowned poet and author Oscar Wilde is quoted as saying, “One can never be overdressed or overeducated.” Have you ever really thought of what “overeducated” could mean?

Choosing a major is a difficult decision. We spend most of our waking life working, so there are a lot of pressures that ride on the choice you make, such as how much education you’ll need, how much money you can expect to make, how in love with the work you will be, and how satisfied your parents will be with your choice. That’s a lot to think about, so let’s make it a little bit more simple by focusing on the most important aspect of that decision-making process: how in love with the work you will be. That’s right.

New Zealand, Australia, China, Japan, South Africa, Ireland, England… These are just a few of the many places that RWU has to offer when it comes to studying abroad.
