What is the value of overseas education to your children?
A wise man once said, “Education is more valuable than money, in the long run.”
Figures have proven that Malaysia is ranked number 2 on the list of top sending countries to the UK, a total figure of close to 17,999 students. where as for Australia, we are ranked number 3 with up to 14,999 students. Up until about 5 years ago, there were fewer than 15 UK universities with a base in the area, but the number totals more than 30 now.
It is a well-known fact that we see value in pursuing an overseas education. The definition of ‘we’ includes employers, society, industry and many other factions. Chances are you would have a family member or a friend, who has studied abroad, especially in English-speaking countries like UK, Australia or the US.
In the light of recent global development – Brexit in the UK and Trump as the new US president and a tepid Australia economy, how do you make a right choice on which country to continue a quality education? In spite of developments on the global front, overseas education numbers are not expected to take a meaningful dip. While education is a need, it could be argued that an overseas education, apart from being viewed as an investment, is a luxury.
Although many stake holders are gloomy about the economic outlook and weakening ringgit, many parents are still determined to send their children abroad. This is to ensure their children will get a high-quality overseas education.
