Every year more than 30,000 Russians go to study abroad . In general, international student migration has a truly impressive scale. According to experts' forecasts, by 2025 the world student community will unite 262 million people. At the same time, foreign students in higher educational institutions of host countries will be 3 times more than in 2015. Their number in the world can reach 8 million.
The main reason for the popularity of foreign education is obvious. Many countries today can not provide their youth with decent conditions for obtaining education, primarily higher education. The number of schoolchildren who receive matriculation certificates abroad is also growing rapidly. This greatly simplifies the subsequent process of admission to universities, institutes, academies and higher profile schools.
Popular and special language programs are gaining popularity, targeting students of different ages, academic needs. Many people prefer to learn language courses abroad. Full immersion in the cultural and linguistic environment, modern methods of teaching, effective programs of schools, camps, centers give a quick and lasting result.
The benefits of studying abroad
Anyone can get an education abroad today. This requires only a desire, financial resources and a high level of basic academic training. It will also require the ability to communicate freely in the language of the country of instruction. Gaps in knowledge will help to fill specialized preparatory courses.
Obtaining education abroad has several obvious advantages. First of all it is:
prospects: the certificates of Western schools are recognized by universities in most countries of the world, university diplomas are quoted everywhere; Having received an education corresponding to international standards, a specialist gets an obvious advantage in the resume;
practice: all educational programs abroad are practical, and the internship, unlike the Russian one, is not just another stage of training, but can become an excellent career start;
communication and experience: studying abroad allows you to make a lot of acquaintances, valuable both in personal and in professional sphere.
Financial aspects of foreign education
Many people continue to consider foreign education inaccessible because of financial reasons. In fact, the cost of programs in European universities isn't really different as in most countries. Many students go to Western universities, because practically for the same money they can get a better practice-oriented education and a diploma, which is quoted all over the world.
Various methods are used to optimize training costs. The easiest way is to get a targeted loan. You can also find a special program, funded by a private sponsor and allowing you to get a profile education abroad. In addition, in many private schools and universities of the world, foreign students can apply for scholarships. They are awarded on the basis of academic, sporting, creative achievements.
Affordable study abroad is a path that not everyone can solve. But, as practice shows, opportunities and prospects are worth the effort. Foreign education significantly increases the chances of finding a job (and hence financial success) in developed countries and allows you to quickly reach career heights at home.
