What Experts Are Saying About International Education

 

Education is quickly becoming a valuable commodity, specifically when geared towards foreign students.

While any country would be remiss in neglecting to attract the best and the brightest students to their universities, and creating an international reputation, there are much more benefits to an international education.

Experts around the world have now formulated several views that are held regarding international education, and these views are often reviewed by students and institutions in order to establish the correct choices and plans for the future.

International Education Is a Valuable Business

Teacher Ramiro P. Smith from Best Australian Writers has highlighted the value of international students for institutions, noting that Australia made more than ‘20 billion Australian Dollars for 2015-2016’ making it one of the most lucrative businesses in the country. For that reason alone, it is reasonable to expect that institutions around the world will continue to try and attract international students, as they can make profits from the higher fees. However, students seem happy to pay these fees in order to receive an education from a good school in a developed country, showing that location is considered important by students.

International Education Is Vital For the Future

Ever since 9/11, the world has been in some state of conflict, and prejudices continue to grow. One of the best ways to reduce these prejudices and heal some of the wounds in the world is by forming links around the world, having common languages and experiencing other cultures. By studying abroad, even for a semester, you show other your culture and embrace theirs. With globalization also affecting daily life more and more, without some ideas of history, geography, and politics around the world, job opportunities will be limited and there is a definite cap on the level of success that can be achieved.

Expand Student’s Understandings

When we learn about history or politics in school we learn about our own country. While we talk about opening minds and letting students form their own opinions, they’re actually given very strict parameters for those opinions. Especially students in the USA, where neighboring countries like Canada and the Caribbean speak English, and the country itself is relatively new, can benefit from studying abroad and seeing a much more extended history, and

Especially students in the USA, where neighboring countries like Canada and the Caribbean speak English, and the country itself is relatively new, can benefit from studying abroad and seeing a much more extended history, and being able to learn and use foreign languages. This will lead to students who can work in global businesses and hold their own while dealing with offices abroad, rather than being unable to comprehend points of view that differ from their own.

Is International Education Separate to Core Subjects?

The truth is that international education shouldn’t be seen as separate from other subjects, it should be seen as a means to enhance core subjects. Studying literature from another country, learning about foreign business practices, putting American history into context with events in the rest of the world are all essential in improving education standards at home, as students have a wider understanding that schools can build upon.

 

Can International Education Promote Diversity?

There is a common view amongst experts that international education could provide a vital boost to eliminating the role discrimination still, unfortunately, plays in the workplace. By experiencing another culture, students get to sample other points of view without the comfort of being surrounded by people just like them, and feeling like their view is the right view. It can also highlight the intelligence required to work in a foreign

By experiencing another culture, students get to sample other points of view without the comfort of being surrounded by people just like them, and feeling like their view is the right view. It can also highlight the intelligence required to work in a foreign language or move to a new country.

It does not hurt for someone to experience being in the minority at some point in their life, and know how that feels and the support they required in the workplace. As diversity and full representation becomes an increasingly important topic, there is a massive benefit for any graduate to be able to say that this is something they understand and have experienced first-hand.

A Well-Rounded Pool of Graduates

There’s no doubt that having independently moved abroad while studying shows courage, determination, resourcefulness, and also provides skills such as organization and adaptability. This just makes the jobs market in the home country even stronger as more experienced graduates enter the

This just makes the jobs market in the home country even stronger as more experienced graduates enter the workforce and start making waves quickly.

From the expert views expounded above, it’s clear that the phenomenon of international education will continue to grow from strength to strength, and that is to the benefit of everyone.
