I am assuming this question is asking if studying abroad is hard. To me, it depends on the person's experiences and their ability to adapt to different surroundings. Usually, the transition is hard since you are away from your home, and you are trying to adapt to an entirely different culture. But I have found that it becomes easier as time goes on. Once you meet new people and find what matters the most to you, you naturally adjust and settle in. There will still be difficulties like cultural shock or just moments of nostalgia, but I think once you understand your surroundings, things get better. I have moved 5 times and used to live in a foreign country, it was difficult for me, but time made things easier.
