In the past when students did a university degree, they tended to study in their own country. Nowadays, they have more opportunity to study abroad. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this development? You should use your own ideas, knowledge and experience and support your arguments with examples and relevant evidence. Write at least 250 words.




The evolution of human race from the cave man trying to make fire from rubbing two stones to the one moving into space and discovering new galaxies every day become possible only due to education. It is the only thing that pushes us to look beyond race, religion and ethnicity and work for the betterment of this mankind, to discover new horizons and to conquer untouched seas.

Every country has its own culture and values that is deeply infested in its habitants. The education system of each country reflects these cultural values. As the mankind evolved and our world becomes a ‘global village’ people felt more relaxed allowing their children to move to other countries for study and work. This increase in human resource export not only helped the students to gain a broader view for themselves but also produce healthy benefits for the economy of their countries. This educated class when after completing the studies get themselves settled and send back money to their families in the form of foreign currency is fruitful for the economic conditions of many poor countries. But on the negative side, young generation leaving their country to study abroad and settling down there causes brain drain at their homeland creating a vacuum which cannot be filled.

The only solution to cater for the negative effects of this ‘brain drain’ situation is to build international standard universities and then encourage student exchange programs and scholarships. That way the students can experience the international exposure and then would be bound to return to their home and serve without causing any damage to the intelligence of their nation.
