Global Education: A fast growing global trend

Oct. 05, 2015

In pursuing a dream, one must carefully plan their steps to achieve it. For most people in the country whose aspiration is a better life for themselves and their families, it has to begin with education. While others set off somewhere near, some find their compass pointing overseas. According to a study, about five million students are studying outside of their home countries, with the United States remaining to be the world’s leading destination for international students, followed by the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, which all host about half of the world’s mobile tertiary students. Australia, Canada, and New Zealand have also been gaining a greater share of international students over the last decade.

Choosing to leave home and study abroad is a huge step towards that dream job—that dream future; but it takes more than just one’s determination to see it through. Choosing a country, finding the right institution and getting in, acquiring a visa, and actually landing your destination is a journey all on its own, and it’s often not a quick and easy one. Getting to the finish line and finally reaching your dream require a lot of hard work, but getting yourself to the starting point shouldn’t be as complicated.
