We live in an increasingly globalized world today – more than we did even a decade ago. The ease of travel and access to information has fuelled global aspirations in today’s youth, who are looking to Global Ed as a means to live enriching educational experiences. Unsurprisingly, student mobility has seen a steep rise, as learners look beyond geographical borders for higher quality education and seek a more culturally vibrant learning environment.
However, the unfortunate truth is that while millions of students are able to realize their dreams, there are the other millions who don’t. While the reasons are many, the primary one is economical. Aspiring students tend to give in to the preconceived notion that Global Education is unaffordable – that it is the prerogative of the affluent alone.
